Matthew Fishel, Mount Royal '10: In The End, We Were Never So Different @ School 33 Art Center
September 5, 2014 – October 25, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, September 5, 6-9pm
School 33 Art Center
1427 Light Street
Matthew Fishel is a graduate of Mount Royal School of Art '10, and Post-Baccalaureate Fine Arts '08.
Two Cold War bombers--an American B-52 and a Soviet Tu-95--follow an eternal flight path across a misty arctic sea. Having lived out their useful lives, they continue to spend their days as they are accustomed--flying in circles and dropping no bombs. Perhaps they have grown fond of each other."
"In the End, We Were Never So Different" is a meditation on crisis, missed potential, and changing relationships. It is a short film with no clear beginning or end, subverting linear time and creating an opportunity for the viewer to determine their own experience.
