Scrivener's Monthly: Andrew Berardini Dreaming About Sunsets and Clouds with Kara Hansen

Apr 22, 2016



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


8:17 p.m.


Presented as part of Scrivener’s Monthly, Andrew Bernardini read a poetic essay about the varieties of clouds and how to look at sunsets. Accompanied by Vancouver-based artist Kara Hansen, the hour-long reading was introduced with Joni Mitchell’s song “Clouds” (1969), and unfolded against a live streamed video projection of the sky at sunset. The event was paced by the movement of the sun towards the horizon and concluded at nightfall.

Scrivener’s Monthly was a series of public presentations that explored the space between material practices and spoken words. Set alongside exhibitions at Western Front, this experiment in “not publishing” involved readings, performances, and other articulations.

Video documentation of this event is available upon request.
