February 5 — March 5, 2022
Vilhelm Sundin’s work operates between photography and film, presenting durational scenes comprised of visual elements both real and imagined, depicting familiar yet impossible scenarios. He holds an MFA from Simon Fraser University, Vancouver and a BA in Media Arts from Emily Carr University. Sundin’s work was recently shown in North Vancouver at the Polygon Gallery. After moving from his native Sweden in 2006, Vilhelm Sundin now lives and works in Vancouver, BC.,
Monte Clark is pleased to present an installation of video work by Vilhelm Sundin in the gallery February 5th through March 5th, 2022. On view are two works that revisit Last Light (2017) and The Ship at the Bottom of the Mountain (2018).
Depicting twilight scenes, mundane in nature, the viewer is invited to experience the passage of time as the day progresses into night. In a recut version of Last Light, a park empties as the horizon light fades across a snow covered bank. The Ship at the Bottom of the Mountain II revisits a familiar scene of a ship floating under the North Shore, this time depicting the edge of a dock looking out to a buoyant fuel station, illuminated against the twinkling lights of the terminal in the background.
