The Metabolics of Peace: A Video Triptych

Greenboro Recreation Complex, Ottawa
Commission by the City Of Ottawa, 2011.  Shoalts and Zaback Architects

Description:
3 different continuous-play videos (5, 7, 11 minutes), on 3 plasma monitors and mounted with perforated steel frames.  These are and mounted in a  narrow 70′ hallway of minimalist concrete architecture, connecting two gymnasiums, a youth/seniors activity room, a dance studio, a weight room and change rooms.

Concept:
“Metabolism” refers to chemical processes responsible for maintaining life.
Beyond physical survival, this art explores the energetic body and ideas about wellness and spirit.  Working with over a hundred people to capture the on-site activities, the artist portrayed many physiques, ages and activities through evolving images, at an ultra-slow pace.  Manipulating camera angle, speed and colour, she created familiar and abstract compositions, speaking to the beauty of the body-in-motion and post-work-out bliss.  The artwork is a meditation on achieving inner peace through exercise and dance.

c j fleury works with diverse media and is recognized for groundbreaking projects that bring the “public” into public art.
