Prospect 3: Mongrel Moods – Video by Dorain Henderson

February 17, 1996 - March 24, 1996


Curator:
Year 1996 Theme Emerging Artists, Film, Video & Performance, Nova Scotian Artists

Themes of alienation haunt the video production of Dorain Henderson, a recent graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Headache, a 21-minute tape completed in 1995, confronts the intimate illusion of home video with a poetically controlled vision of family dissolution. Short tapes such as Narcissistic Endeavours (1993) and Landscape Suicide (1994) also use repetition, out-of-synch audio and surreal displacements to intensify the aura of psychological dysfunction.
