The Same Problem 5

Aleesa Cohene, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay

Acclaimed Canadian media artists Aleesa Cohene and Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay premiere the latest installment of their ongoing collaborative project The Same Problem, initiated in 2009. The Same Problem 5 explores questions of the ego and memory within a reconstruction of deeply-felt media experiences. Both artists are interested in notions of splintered identities and the mutability of self.

Through the process of addressing these ever-present vulnerabilities, composite characters begin to emerge, stitched together from found footage and subtly melded with scenes filmed by the artists themselves and with a carefully wrought sense for language and sound.

Organized and produced by the Ryerson Image Centre.
