About the Program

Presented by the UK's Folly Gallery, 2001 a space odyssey - an excavation of truth was a live durational performance piece carried out in isolation; performed by Hester Reeve in England but projected into a prepared location at grunt gallery in Vancouver. The projected performance presents the spectator with the virtual artist's body interacting with concrete physical space but from a different dimension and location. A reversal of experience is created - the live human presence backgrounded within the site, which functions as the foreground.
