Pedestrian Protest

In a new commission for the Vancouver Art Gallery's Offsite, Vancouver based artists Evann Siebens and Keith Doyle explore how a moving body, whether in solitude or en masse, can become a political act. Pedestrian Protest includes 24 media performances, created by collaborators, that reference histories of protest, current and past. The individuals and collectives were filmed and edited by Evann Siebens and combined into a collage of photo, media and movement. Each location, chosen by a project collaborator, is uniquely emblematic and linked to specific histories or present places of demonstration and activism. Keith Doyle responds to this mapping of the city through his sculptural intervention, referring to the precarious and temporary conditions of Vancouver’s constantly changing built environment.
