About

On Sunday September 3, join DHC/ART Education for a Happening! Co-hosted with local artist Jenny Lin, the Happening marks the end of the workshop Repositories.

Jenny will be in the Education room to facilitate a special edition of the workshop entitled Repositories: Lost and Found Edition.

For this event, participants will engage in conversation with each other to create a collective, augmented reality zine about lost objects. Participants will be invited to write a short description of an object they have lost. Based on these descriptions, subsequent participants will render their interpretations of the objects, through drawing. Participants will be guided on how to create augmented reality layers with their images, viewable through a tablet or smartphone with the application, Aurasma. Following the workshop, participants will receive in the mail a printed zine with the collection of lost and “found” objects created during the workshop.

The Happening is ongoing, free of charge, and open to all visitors. No reservation is required.

Repositories is the result of a collaboration between Jenny Lin and DHC/ART Education in conjunction with the exhibition Ed Atkins: Modern Piano Music.

Drop-in workshop (bilingual): 2 to 5 PM @ 465 St-Jean St.

Biography

Jenny Lin is a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Montreal. Her practice centres on experimental narratives including autobiography, fiction and autobiographical fiction. She creates alternative readings of mainstream narratives by reframing the ambiguous and fragmented tropes in storytelling as sites for transgressive actions and identities. Using digitally-rendered and hand-drawn imagery, she explores formats including 2-D print, artist books and zines, single and multi-channel video, installation and interactive web projects. Some of her book projects were created in collaboration with Eloisa Aquino as B&D Press. Jenny Lin completed a BFA degree at the University of Calgary (1994-98) and an MFA at Concordia University (1998-2001). She currently teaches at Concordia University as a sessional instructor in the Print Media program. jenny-lin.ca
