2010 Sobey Art Award winner Daniel Barrow comes to Dawson City!

On Sunday, November 13th at 7pm Daniel Barrow will present a free artist talk in the KIAC ODDfellows Ballroom

On Monday, November 14th at 7pm Daniel will perform his newest award winning “manual animation”:

Every Time I See Your Picture I Cry

Written, illustrated, and performed by Daniel Barrow, this  “manual animation” combines overhead projection with video, music, and live narration to tell the story of a garbage man with a vision to create an independent phone book chronicling the lives of each person in his city. In the late hours of the night, he sifts through garbage, collecting personal information and then traces pictures of each citizen through the windows of their homes as they sleep. What he doesn’t yet realize is that a deranged killer is trailing him, murdering each citizen he includes in his book, thus rendering his cataloging efforts obsolete. The garbageman is a failed artist who fears becoming subject to the grip of something overwhelming. This animation traces his attempts to slow down and creatively reflect, in a process of coming to terms with his own self-loathing and fear.

Tickets are available at KIAC and Maximillians, $10 in advance, $12 at the door
