The Contemporary Art Gallery was pleased to announce the Canadian premiere of Vancouver based artist Stan Douglas’ film work Journey into Fear (2001). Douglas is one Canada’s most internationally acclaimed artists, and this marked his first exhibition in his home town since 1998.

Journey into Fear takes its name from two movies. The 1940 original features Orson Welles’ Mercury Players. A 1975 remake was one of the first motion pictures ever shot in Vancouver by a local crew. It starred Sam Waterston and Vincent Price in a shipbound suspense thriller. Douglas’ work is a DVD video installation that stages an antagonistic exchange between a woman and man in a cyclical, ever mutating loop, a formal device characteristic of Douglas’ recent practice. Set on a container ship en route to Vancouver, the work examines the 1970s as an historical moment of flux between internationalism and globalism, to which the ship acts as stage and metaphor. The DVD was accompanied by a suite of photographs of Vancouver set locations, including Douglas’ 16 foot long depiction of the south side of the 100 Block of West Hastings Street.
