Monodramas is the debut presentation of Byron Peters’ ongoing video-based storytelling and documentation of resistance movements centered around digital labour. This exhibition marks the culmination of his INFRA_SPECTION residency in Summer 2014.
Co-produced by their characters (organisers, dancing children, and striking post-production workers), these short videos act simultaneously as documentary and science fiction, and depict an emerging struggle for new social formations against stratified, measured and monetized existences.
In addition to this linear video installation at The White Building, the Monodramas (which borrow their name from Stan Douglas’ 1991 production of short videos that aired within commercial time slots on Canadian broadcast television), regularly stream as online commercial content in a variety of forms.
