Hopinka will present a selection of his moving images works, including Jaaji Approx. (2015), a film that approximates a relationship between audio recordings of the artist’s father and videos of landscapes through which they have individually passed. Additionally, I’ll Remember You as You Were, not as What You’ll Become (2016) presents an elegy to the poet Diane Burns on the shapes of mortality, and being, and the forms the transcendent spirit takes while descending upon landscapes of life and death. Following the screening, Hopinka will discuss his practice with curator Suzy Halajian.

 

This program is co-presented by the Northwest Film Center.
