Catalogue produced to accompany Sterbak’s project for the 50th Venice Biennale: a video made from images collected by a camera strapped to a dog’s head. Godmer states how this performance based piece, in its relation to time and contingency, is consistent with Sterbak’s artistic track. Referring to notions of “moving” and “subjective” camera, Locke provides an in-depth analysis of the technological and stylistic aspects of the artist’s work. Includes a description of the Canadian Pavilion as well as historical documents on life in New France (recipe, map, etc.) Texts in French, English and Italian. Biographical notes on authors. Bio-bibliography 13 p.
