"Michael  Campbell: Twelve Thousand Years Collapsing into Eight Seconds"
2005-05-27 until 2005-07-02
Plug In, ICA
Winnipeg, MB, CA Canada

 In league with fellow artists to emerge from Lethbridge (Janet Cardiff, George Bures Miller, David Hoffos), Michael        Campbell is the newest to spring from his incubation in this small southern Alberta city to the forefront of the art world. For      his exhibition at Plug In, Campbell will redesign (and expand) a project initially mounted in Lethbridge that employed a     large, quasi-cinematic set to generate a myriad of fictive narratives and uncanny experiences.

Bending history and reality      into a nebulous concoction, Campbell explains: “In past projects I have made connections between the North American      suburban experience with surreal and dream-like narratives. Twelve thousand years continues this discourse between the     unremarkable and the indescribable. The use of familiar cues – the domestic, the cinematic, the historical – within a     somewhat surreal configuration, proposes that the ordinary can transform into the extraordinary in the blink of an eye –      and that twelve thousand years can collapse into eight seconds.” In terms of installation, Campbell connects with the     aforementioned Albers exhibition as he configures his work to be visible from the street – arranging it for optimal interior        and exterior views. In so doing, Campbell extends the frame of the gallery space and integrates a wide audience into his     evocative intersection of filmic structures and fantastic encounters. The experience that follows speaks strongly to Plug In       ICA’s ongoing interests in architectural innovation and aesthetic experimentation.
