About the Program

Different/Diverse brings together European video artists from the UK, Finland, Estonia, and Italy in a program that explores notions of normalcy and the abnormal. Sometimes to act unnaturally helps to focus on the reasons for our everyday acts, our "normal" life and to discover new ways of thinking and creating different perspectives. What is not normal can be not only abnormal—already a pathological territory—but also different, or diverse.

The exhibition, screenings, and performances offer a strong look at current European video practice. Artists included Graham Fagen, Douglas Gordon, Gun Holmström, Kai Kaljo, Paolo Ravalico Scerri, Giovanni Rizzoli, Terry Smith, and Roi Vaara. Different/Diverse is a production of Nuova Icona & Vortice and in Vancouver it will be co-hosted by grunt and Western Front. The show consisted of a screening and a simultaneous opening hosted by grunt and Western Front on January 17, 2002, and a performance by Paolo Ravalico Scerri on January 18, 2002.
