Doubletake - Sarah Pupo & Kandis Friesen
Part residency, part studio, and part exhibition, doubletake is a live visual call and response between two animators, demystifying the animation process by allowing research, experimentation, and ‘finished’ work to coexist in a gallery setting.
Come and visit Kandis and Sarah working live in the space throughout the month! See the Facebook event here for more info. EEG is open Tues-Sat 12-5pm.

VIDEO WITHOUT VIDEO: A Workshop on Animated Moving Image
Combining hands-on making and animation theory, this workshop will take participants through the process of making a video frame-by-frame. In an accessible format using DIY techniques, we’ll walk through the basic steps of making an animation, look at some contemporary and historic animators, and spend the last half of the workshop making a collaborative animated video together.
No experience necessary. Bring a USB key if you’d like to take a copy of our collaborative animation home with you!

About the artists:
KANDIS FRIESEN - Born and raised in the prairies, Kandis Friesen is an artist and cultural worker based in Montréal. Working from an interdisciplinary approach to both drawing and moving image, her practice looks to sites of ethno-national and cultural articulations, diasporic language and translation, and the role of document and archive in constructions of public memory. Friesen has exhibited locally and internationally at various festivals and galleries, including recent projects with DARE-DARE (Montréal), Fuse magazine (Toronto), and MIX (New York), and recently received the CALQ-Québec Artist In Residence at The Banff Centre for the Arts in 2014. http://kandisfriesen.com/
SARAH PUPO's work integrates painting and drawing, installation and self-taught, provisional animation techniques. Her approach to making things prioritizes intuition, ritual, associative thinking and the flux of chance and control. She has exhibited at galleries and artist run centres locally and internationally. Recent projects include a solo exhibition at articule (Montreal), participation in the Symposium of Contemporary Art in Baie-Saint-Paul and residencies in Iceland, Finland and the Yukon. Pupo lives and works in Montreal, Quebec where she completed her MFA at Concordia University.
