Daniel Barrow awed Club PuSh audiences in 2009 with his live, manual animations on overhead projectors. His stunningly beautiful imagery and colourfully touching narratives are unforgettable. Looking for Love in the Hall of Mirrors, a classic comic book narrative accompanied by a live monologue and soundtrack, follows a foppish man who moves to the city in pursuit of love, sex and artistic success. Barrow will also perform the world premiere of Good Gets Better, a new work centered on the story of a masked harlequin’s lost innocence.
Winnipeg-bred, Montreal-based artist Daniel Barrow uses obsolete technologies to present written, pictorial and cinematic narratives centering on the practices of drawing and collecting. Since 1993, he has created and adapted comic book narratives to “manual” forms of animation by projecting, layering and manipulating drawings on overhead projectors. Barrow has exhibited widely in Canada and abroad. He has performed at The Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), PS1 Contemporary Art Center (New York), The Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), The International Film Festival Rotterdam, The Portland Institute for Contemporary Art’s 2009 TBA festival, and the Gene Siskel Film Center (Chicago). Barrow is the 2007 winner of the Canada Council’s Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton award and the 2008 winner of the Images Festival’s Images Prize. Barrow is represented by Jessica Bradley Art + Projects, Toronto.
