Suspended Moment - a collaborative participatory work with Anna Ruth
Suspended Moment is a participatory drawing project and installation by Rina Liddle and Anna Ruth created specifically for the Quinary Art Projects pop up gallery. Rina and Anna have been working together since 2003, over a great distance. Anna’s arrival to Vancouver from Finland a month before the exhibition provided a great opportunity to work in close physical proximity. This site-specific work looks at notions of the in between by inviting viewers to trace the ferry route between Hornby and Denman Islands, two popular summer destinations for relaxation and rejuvenation. Viewers engage with BC Ferries GPS system and give visual meaning to an ephemeral moment. This process-driven project builds upon both Rina and Anna’s respective practices by creating a framework for human and technical interaction.
