Visiting Artist Lecture: Janice Kerbel


Ranging from radio plays to print-based works to installations of sound and light, the work of London-based Canadian artist Janice Kerbel explores the indefinite space between reality and fiction. After extensively researching historical, cultural and environmental sources, she carefully constructs considerably ordinary yet imaginary scenarios that take the form of scripts, announcements, proposals and plans. Past projects include “Kill the Workers!,” a silent play written solely for stage lights in which the central protagonist, naturally performed by a spotlight, longs to join the worker lights in anonymity. An earlier installation, “Ballgame (Innings 1–3),” consisted of a single speaker playing the commentary of a live baseball game. Though the players’ average performance was believable, the script was entirely fictional, serving as a study on jargon and language rather than the dramatic highs and lows of the sport. Through her works, Kerbel attempts to emphasize the details of experience in new ways.
