Activating the Archive 3: Finding the DIFFEREN(t)CE

Lisa Steele and John Orentlicher
Art Metropole
Artists' Books
28 × 22 × 0.2 cm

From the series “Activating the Archive”, in which selections from Art Metropole’s archive of videotapes were made by artists, critics and curators on a particular topic or theme. This publication acts as a written documentation of the event where Toronto video artist Lisa Steele spoke on the work of American video artist John Orentlicher. Steele develops a fascinating discussion on her knowledge and experience of the ‘female voice’ in video work and her acknowledgment that she has a limited comprehension of the ‘male perspective’. This duality creates a smart tension that Steele beautifully straddles in a time of uprising Third Wave feminism.
