The Same Problem 5

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.
