Accompaniment to a Cinematographic Scene: Ruskin B.C.

Status: Sold Out

Accompaniment to a Cinematographic Scene: Ruskin B.C. is a series of ten Kodacolour photographs taken with a large format camera. The prints are mounted in 16" x 20" mats and are accompanied by a text panel that is an integral part of the work. The portfolio was published in 1992 in an edition of ten.

The landscape images contained in this portfolio are location photographs for a subsequent film installation, "Ruskin, B.C.: Pursuit of Fear and Catastrophe" and are sequenced to resemble a film loop. Douglas draws out the lyricism of a dissonant landscape revealing the interactions of nature and industry. Informed by a conceptualist sensibility, this work alludes to the dynamics of social change through the specifics of the history of Ruskin, a small B.C. town. Stan Douglas lives in Vancouver. His film and video installations have been shown at prestigious institutions worldwide.

This portfolio is sold out.
