Id’s Its – Intallation by Deirdre Logue | Exhibition: July 13 to August 4
Opening and Artist Talk: Friday, July 13, 7pm
Since early May Deirdre Logue (Toronto, ON) has immersed herself in Victoria’s springtime energy, inhabiting a summer residency studio at Open Space. She has completed a major new video installation entitled “Id’s Its,” which opens on Friday, July 13 at 7pm.
Following on the previous success of “Enlightened Nonsense” (1997-2000), and “Why Always Instead of Just Sometimes” (2003-2006), “Id’s Its” showcases Logue’s recent experimental self-portraits that continue her ongoing exploration into the psychological and physiological space of the self in contemporary art. Visitors to the exhibition will encounter an immersive and visually intense terrain. Meet Deirdre Logue at the opening of “Id’s Its” where she will give a brief artist talk and tour of the exhibition at 7pm.
“Leaning lightly on Freud’s somewhat archaic concept of the Id and heavily on performance for the camera, my new work explores the richness of our malfunctions, psychic unrest, the power of the abject and our tendencies towards self-destruction.”
Logue is internationally recognized for her experimental film and video works that engage questions around queer identity, mental health, feminism and the role of media arts in a broader spectrum of art and society.
