My exhibition, Pierre Tremblay: Pools, developed in part during a residency in Iceland (Winter 2015) was curated by Sara Knelman. It had a first public showcase a one-night event, one-hour screening of selected new video work in an empty pool – the Ryerson swimming pool – on 4 May, 2016. It also involved additional projection, live musical accompaniment and readings.
The one-hour screening showed a sequence of twelve short films made with a GoPro camera while swimming in different pools around the world. Constructed as New Media visual poems, each film is crafted with original music by a number of Canadian composers and one Icelandic composer, two of whom performed at the event. I also collaborated with Nancy Campbell, an Oxford, England based writer who has written two poems specifically for the films.
