PLATFORM is pleased to present, Station to Station, an exhibition of new work by Vancouver-based artist Raymond Boisjoly. Boisjoly continues his investigation into the status of the photographic image - that, in his own words, acts as “an object that negotiates darkness.” Exploring the politics of representation, Station to Station is comprised of abstracted film stills created through the productive misuse of technology. Sourced from Kent Mackenzie’s film, The Exiles (1961), Boisjoly’s images are made by scanning the film while it is being played on a portable digital video player: turning moving images into still ones. The documentary style film, now preserved by the American National Film Registry, follows a group of Aboriginal friends living in Los Angeles. Over a twelve-hour period, the film records their candid discussions of home, community, and future.
