*Reminder* Zin Taylor documentary screening tonight!


MET TON OEIL DANS TA BOUCHE/PUT YOUR EYE IN YOUR MOUTH
A Conversational Documentary Recording Martin Kippenberger's Metro-Net Station in Dawson City, Yukon
By Zin Taylor

Free Admission
Refreshments served

PUT YOUR EYE IN YOUR MOUTH is a video installation structured as a 22-minute broadcast-length documentary that explores the personalities that form a fantastic narrative of the public identity of Martin Kippenberger's Metro-net subway entrance/sculpture in the town of Dawson City, in the Yukon Territory.

Zin Taylor conducted an extensive interview with Reinald Nohal, German art patron, part-time Yukon resident, friend of Kippenberger's and the builder and designer of the Metro-net. Nohal's accounts of the conceptualization and construction of the Metro-net provided the basis for Taylor's series of dramatic re-enactments. PUT YOUR EYE IN YOUR MOUTH's cast of characters are based as much in reality as in imagination. The video is accompanied by a small book comprised of photographic documentation of the Metro-net and the material-debris found at the site. Taylor's elaborate project introduces audiences to a scenario that addresses the variables involved in constructing an identity for a subject.

This presentation is the first of a nameless, off-the-cuff and casual series organized by Pavilion Projects (http://www.pavilionprojects.com). It has been set in place to present medium length narrative video works for a captive audience within an amicable environment. Prior to its presentation with Pavilion Projects, PUT YOUR EYE IN YOUR MOUTH was presented at the Presentation House Gallery, North Vancouver, and YYZ artists' outlet, Toronto.

Toronto-based Zin Taylor's work addresses the role audience plays in constructing new meanings from the field of popular culture. His projects reflect on the cultural environment as a construction site where lateral and at times divergent narrative constructions are developed through an active and individual participation. Taylor is represented by Jessica Bradley Art + Projects, Toronto.
