Main venue

Lorna Mill’s work explores the different streams in subcultures through animated GIFs mainly focusing on marginalised peculiarity. The absurd quality in her work is one of the conditions of the artist’s Internet browsing and most often comes from looking at how people, who don’t usually place themselves as artists, perform online in front of a video camera. Colour Fields is the latest work by Lorna Mills that derives from her obsessive research on GIF culture, its brevity, compression, technical constraints and its continued existence on the Internet. Colour Fields are part of a new ongoing series of found and altered animated Gifs.

ARTISTS


Lorna Mills (CA)

Canadian artist, Lorna Mills has actively exhibited her work in both solo and group exhibitions since the early 1990’s, both in Canada and Internationally. Her practice has included obsessive Ilfochrome printing, obsessive painting, obsessive super 8 film & video, and obsessive on-line animated GIFs incorporated into restrained off-line installation work. Recent exhibitions include “Abrupt Diplomat” at the Marshal McLuhan Salon at the Canadian Embassy in Berlin, for Transmediale, “At Play in the Fields of the Lord” at Transfer Gallery, Brooklyn NY and “DKRM” at DAM Gallery, Berlin. For the month of March, 2016, her work will be showing on 45 Jumbo monitors in Times Square, NYC, every night as part of the Midnight Moment program curated by Times Square Arts. She has also co-curated monthly group GIF projections, with Rea McNamara, for the “Sheroes” performance series in Toronto, a group GIF projection event “When Analog Was Periodical” in Berlin with Anthony Antonellis, and a four person GIF installation, “:::Zip The Bright:::” at Trinity Square Video in Toronto, with Sara Ludy, Nicolas Sassoon and Rick Silva. Lorna Mills’ most recent curation project, “Ways of Something” is a collaborative remake of the 1972 John Berger documentary “Ways of Seeing” episodes one through four, featuring 113 networked artists. Lorna Mills is represented by Transfer Gallery in Brooklyn, New York and DAM Gallery in Berlin.
