Brion Wagner – Peterborough, ON

October 4th to 16th, 2010
Public Performance/Presentation: Friday, October 15th, 8pm to 10pm.
FREE Public Workshop: Tuesday, October 12 at 7pm.

Within the context of our contemporary digital media environment, artist Brion Wagner engages in a multi-faceted practice that incorporates backward or obsolete technologies, circuit bending, thrift store mining as well as modern software and hardware technologies, into a media art work best described as a movable feast. As a long-standing Board Director of “Artspace” in Peterborough Wagner was a founding member of the experimental sound band “Full Metal Booty,” as well as a regular fixture on Trent Radio’s “Jamming with Manlicher.” The artist describes his work as follows:

Although I have never been willing to specialize in any one or two media, there are aspects common to all of my work: collage, use of recycled or re-purposed materials, density of information, a tendency for elements to emerge, interact, then subside or decay, and a sense of interconnectedness among superficially unrelated fragments. Though individual works may seem complete unto themselves, I see all of them as part of a greater whole. Each is potentially raw material to reuse or remix in a larger, ongoing work.

Please join us on Tuesday, October 12th at 7PM when Brion Wagner will stage an experimental audio art/mixed media workshop that will be available FREE to the public. Then on Friday, October 15th at 8pm Brion Wagner will mount a multi-media, public performance event that will reflect the work he undertakes during his residency in Saskatoon.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday, Noon – 6 pm; Saturdays Noon – 4pm.
