whiteonwhite

The first solo exhibition in Canada of Brooklyn-based artist Eve Sussman and her collaborative team Rufus Corporation brings together a series of interrelated films and videos, photographs and installations developed on numerous journeys through Russia and Central Asia. The focus of the exhibition is the film installation whiteonwhite: algorithmicnoir, which draws on the radial abstractions and reflections on transcendence of Kasimir Malevich, and the fate of Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin, seen through the lens of science fiction and film noir cinematography. Generated by algorithm, edited in real time and heavily informed by such twentieth-century filmmakers as Andrei Tarkovsky, Jean-Luc Godard and Wim Wenders, whiteonwhite is a fascinating investigation into space and time, utopia and dystopia, fractured narration, train travel and landscapes marked by economic and ecological upheaval.
