Julia Feyrer and Tamara Henderson: Consider the Belvedere

About

Drinking songs and cocktail furniture, film sets and nighttime newspapers, dream states and unconscious meanderings weave their way through the work of Canadian artists Julia Feyrer and Tamara Henderson, whose collaborations cut across film, sculpture, writing, and book-making. This new presentation at ICA is the second stage of the artists’ three-part project that evolved from an exhibition at The Banff Centre, Canada. Envisioned as a kind of theatrical set—a bar, a beach, and a hotel room—the show revolves around two 16mm films that portray the artists’ sculptural characters as they embark on mysterious journeys.

The first film, Bottles Under the Influence (2012), stars glass bottles from the collection of the Historical Museum of Wines and Spirits in Stockholm, which are treated as actors to be staged, observed, projected on, used, and destroyed. The second film, Consider the Belvedere (2015), takes the form of a detective story. Shot on location in the exhibition at The Banff Centre, and in Vancouver at the Belvedere apartment complex, this most recent film will premiere at ICA.

Organized at ICA by Alex Klein, Dorothy and Stephen R. Weber (CHE’60) Program Curator.

This publication marks the culmination of Julia Feyrer and Tamara Henderson’s three-part exhibition project. Julia Feyrer and Tamara Henderson documents the project viewed through the artists’ films from the perspective of the exhibition installations at Banff Centre, ICA, and the Belkin Art Gallery that served as the sets for their films, as well as from the artists’ process archives, which include the writing, poetry, drawing, and painting that form the backbone of the artists’ respective practices. This fully-illustrated catalogue, designed by Mark Owens, includes essays by curators Jesse McKee (Banff Centre), Alex Klein (ICA), and Scott Watson (Belkin Art Gallery).
