Infinity Award 2012 : Stan Douglas


Art - Stan Douglas was born in 1960 in Vancouver, where he continues to live and work. Since the late 1980s, he has created films, photographs, and installations that reexamine particular locations or past events. His works often take their points of departure in local settings, from which broader issues can be identified. Making frequent use of new as well as outdated technologies, he appropriates existing Hollywood genres (including murder mysteries and the Western) and borrows from classic literary works (notably Samuel Beckett, Herman Melville, and Franz Kafka) to create ready-made contextual frameworks for his complex, thoroughly researched projects. His work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at prominent institutions worldwide and many major museum collections hold his work. His awards include the inaugural Hnatyshyn Foundation Visual Arts Award (2007) and the Bell Award in Video Art (2008).
