Anita Rochon | The Chop

Pathetic Fallacy

Using a tempermental broadcast green screen, this piece takes on a changing relationship to weather. Landscape painting, ancient weather gods and meteorological science come together in this curious and hopeful work. Grappling with the politics of existence, Anita Rochon set herself a challenge: create a touring work where no one goes on tour. A local stand-in takes on the central role with no previous instruction.

sun sets

If the sunset was a song would it be an ambient drone track or a musical’s grand finale? From a lawn chair overlooking the vista, sun sets contemplates the relationships between the real and the artificial, time and the built environment. A playful and poetic collage of constructed sunsets, assembled through theatrical, virtual and imaginary means. A performance for those who have and have not watched the sun set recently.
