Robert Kennedy

Animal Control #3 - (Urban Wildlife)

Super 8 window installation
Thursday, January 29 - Sunday, February 1
nightly in the window of Paul Petro Contemporary Art 980 Queen Street West


Robert Kennedy is well known for his many, often moodily playful, Super 8 works such as Hi, I'm Steve and Valley of the Chap Stick. Over the past few years he has also created his Animal Control series, in which animals - both wild and domestic - are enlisted as filmmakers. Their activities trigger an electronic motion sensor and a Super 8 camera thus they film themselves in the act of using the urban landscape to their own ends. Special thanks tp Colin English (Squirrelcam engineer).

Please join us for a reception & talk on the opening night of the installation (Thursday Jan. 29, 7pm)

This four-day screening is in co-operation with the 8fest Small Gauge Film Festival.
