Artist Talk by Scott Billings

12:30 to 1:45pm at Dorothy Somerset Studio, Room 109.

Scott Billings’ practice centers on issues of animality, mobility, and cinematic spectatorship. Through video, sculpture, and installation, Billings’ work examines how the video apparatus itself reveals both the mechanisms of causality and its own dormant animality. Billings has exhibited both locally and internationally. In 2010, Billings attended an artist residency in the Czech Republic where he explored the old underground sewage tunnels in Prague and produced the solo show ‘Maledicta Paradisus…’ at the Communication Space Školská 28 Gallery.

Billings is currently working on a video project in collaboration with Josh Hite which involved the construction of a 70-foot camera rig in a ‘hidden’ stairwell inside the Burrard Bridge. Billings holds an MFA from the University of British Columbia, a BFA from Emily Carr University, and a BASc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Waterloo, works and lives in Vancouver.
