A hand emerges with a flame.

It lights a row of candles one by one, while on another plane candles are extinguished one by one

Begging the question of simultaneity, to the point of melting of that word, like when you mull on a word over and over again.

(Optical) Perception is always deferred.

Thinking of the breadth of time that passes from the moment light is refracted from a surface until reaching our eyes

the light that has traveled across the space until reaching the surface.

The exhibition The Ballad of Perpeutal Bodily Discrepancy showcases new video work by Calgary-based artist Jordan Schinkel, encroaching on the idea of temporal and spatial experience of discrepancy, which can be expanded and articulated using cinematic techniques. In tandem to the exhibition is a small publication with text and image contributions by writers and artists in Calgary and Vancouver, which will be launched in October 20 with a reading.

Jordan Schinkel is a multidisciplinary artist currently living in Calgary. In 2017, he graduated from the Alberta College of Art + Design, where he received a BFA in the Drawing department. Jordan’s studio work fluctuates between drawing and installation-based video, and is prompted by an interest in processes of reordering and reconstructing fragmented moments and images.
