Uncanny

The artists in this exhibition have an investigative outlook and continue to be informed by historical process of the
image in a contemporary and thought-provoking way. Sound, Video, Photography and the view’s own memory provide an image-based
platform for exploring the metamorphosis of the uncanny, a term that Sigmund Freud used to describe a psychological feeling
between terror and fascination. The uncanny is supernatural and fascinating leaving us feeling disturbed in a state of wonderment
and fear.

Sweetness of the Work

Sweetness of the Work is part of a collection exploring the possibilities fo crystalline forms in the lace work. In this installation,
Mississauga-based Noelle Hamlyn works with cotton thread embroidered to create web like structures which are then exposed to a saline solution.
This process encourages the formation of crystals. The evapouration rate, sun exposure, temperature, salt type and saturation of the solution
were varied to create this delicate lace form, floating in space. The process, as well as the nature of the resulting salt crytals on the
embroidered surface creates an apt metaphor for the accumulation of stitches, labour and the hours invested in traditional women’s hand work.
Sweetness of the Work is an homage to the salt tears of the seamstress, as if a gentle meditation on the loss of traditional hand skills. It
also speaks to the hierarchical structures that shape our perception of “women’s work” exposing cloth and lace work as a sociopolitical medium
of contemporary relevance.

The Toronto Jewish Film Festival

The Toronto Jewish Film Festival celebrates its 20th Anniversary with over 95 films representing 15 countries.

Sweden, Austria and the United Kingdom don’t produce many films dealing with Jewish history and identity. However, this year we present films from those places, which offer unusual or little-known stories and unconventional takes on familiar themes and genres.

From the UK, How to Re-Establish a Vodka Empire offers a unique look at Jewish history in both the Ukraine and Northern Ireland. Simon and the Oaks, a Swedish family drama, offers a sumptuously-photographed and intricate psychological portrait of a young man, who must confront his newly-discovered Jewish identity in the years immediately following the Second World War. My BestEnemy is a thriller set during the Nazis’ annexing of Austria, which is audaciously filled with entertaining plot twists and elements of farce.

There are also wonderful comedies that should not be missed. From Argentina, My First Wedding is a comedy of errors filled with a cast of eccentric family members, and of course, a priest and a rabbi. Let My People Go is a charmingly offbeat French comedy that mocks Jewish and gay stereotypes. OSS 117: Lost in Rio is a laugh-outloud parody of 1960s spy films, from Michel Hazanavicius and Jean Dujardin, the Oscar®-winning director and star of The Artist. And many more…
