Dominic Gagnon – Impakt Artist in Residence



Selected from the September 2011 call for proposals was Canadian artist Dominic Gagnon. Inventor, director and active performer on the international scene, Dominic Gagnon considers cinema as a technique for measuring the immeasurable or as a discipline of chaos. He has produced and directed more than a dozen films/videos/documentaries and experimental shorts many of which have won national and international awards.

In 2001 Impakt screened his film Full Throttle Engine at the Centraal Museum and this year the first part of his triptych, Rip in Pieces America was part of the Jailbreak program in the Impakt Festival 2011. After having finished part two of his triptych, Gagnon used his residency at Impakt to complete the third part. Gagnon has been staying at Impakt until the end of January 2012.

Soon we will offer an interview with more thorough insights on Dominic’s endeavours in Utrecht and the developments of the triptych.
