Artist Talk: Kelly Richardson

About

Kelly Richardson is a Canadian artist whose work explores simultaneity, affect and the use of cinematic language to create part real/part imagined landscapes, offering visual metaphors for our modern ?reality?; a wavering hybrid of fact and fiction. Her works have been exhibited internationally at various venues including The Nunnery (London, 2006), Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art (Sunderland, 2005), Gwangju Biennale (South Korea, 2004), Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto, 2003) and Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris, 2002). Upcoming exhibits include The Cinema Effect: Illusion, Reality and the Moving Image at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, 2008). As a visiting artist at /sLab, Richardson is currently working on a new multi-channel video installation entitled The Great Destroyer: featuring an idyllic lush forest inhabited by a myriad of audible creatures, including a bird mimicking the sound of a car alarm, gun shots, chainsaws and cameras clicking.
