LES INTERPRÈTES

Series of documentary interventions / 16 teenagers / École secondaire Jeanne-Mance

The artist is creating a series of performances with 16 teenagers who have just recently arrived to Canada. These performances, which she imagines and produces with the students, are about their experiences, opinions and representation. Performed for the camera or for a live audience through the use of different documentary and performative conventions, the students week after week, conceptually reflect on the ways in which their self-documentation can occur, and the social importance of their depiction in a context such as Montreal; Québec; Canada. Praxes such as declaration, hommage, confidentiality, verbatim, speculation, manifesto, testimony are explored and embodied by the group. Les Interprètes is an experimental moment in which these teenagers are given back authorship and control of their own narrative and image.

This work is made in collaboration with the Centre Turbine centreturbine.org/les-interpretes, thanks to the funding of Fonds dédiés aux écoles publiques, provided by the City of Montreal's Plateau-Mont-Royal arrondissement.

ATHLÉIMNEACHT

The Resilience Archive / Part 1

The Resilience Archive is an ongoing artwork structured in 3 parts. Each part presents the stories and images of a lineage of resilience. Part 1 entitled Athléimneacht follows the Lavery/Hennessey family. Containing video, audio, performance, images and historical records, Athléimneach evolves around the militancy of Susana Hennessey (health equity & social justice - California, USA) and Bobby Lavery (Belfast city council, Republican Long Kesh prisonner - Belfast, NI U.K.).

This work and hommage unfolds visually in different ways according to space or platform.

RIVIÈRES

Documentary performances / 8 citizens of Côte-des-Neiges

Rivières is an ongoing series of documentary performances created by visual artist Veronica Mockler and theatre artist Sofia Blondin. This work situates itself at the crossroads of performance art, documentary and installation. Presented in its staged environments are citizens and their important life narrative. The documentary performances of Rivières consist of two main elements : a soundtrack playing the testimony of a citizen, and the physical presence of this very citizen in front of an audience. Rivières’ first edition took place in Côte-des-Neiges’ community center and featured 8 individuals who live and work in this borough.
Information on Rivières' first edition, part of Montreal's 375th anniversary can be found at : rivieres375mtl.com. Visit www.visible.exposed for more information on Veronica Mockler and Sofia Blondin's collective.

CANVASSERS

Single-channel video performance / HD color + sound / 15:28 min

Mich and Marshall are asked to share a personal story in front of a camera. Both participants come to experience a unified understanding of events when one’s story is orally taken on by the other. This continuous one-shot 15-minute documentary performance demonstrates our empathetic capacity as individuals. This piece was made in response to recent scientific findings that demonstrate that a 10-minute active one-on-one conversation between two individuals can durably reduce longstanding ingrained prejudice.¹
These findings inspired this performance for video in addition to bringing an empirical premise to the artist’s constant use of human interaction as a conceptual and political device.

CHRONIQUE D'UN ÉTÉ

Single-channel video / HD color + sound / 09:58 min

This work borrows its title from famous French documentary classic CHRONIQUE D'UN ÉTÉ (directed by Edouard Morin and Jean Rouch, 1961). In a similar way to its predecessor, this contemporary Québécois take on cinema vérité also presents a youth particular to its time, place and economic status. CHRONIQUE D'UN ÉTÉ (directed by Veronica Mockler, 2016) documents the conversation of three white and young privileged individuals belonging to a typical Western world demographic. The issues raised by this somewhat captivating group of friends constitute the artist’s critique. The futility of their interaction, though entertaining at first, slowly becomes alarming for anyone viewing the work. How these young people have the luxury to be solely concerned with their hair colour is the reality the works aims to expose and subvert.

Curriculum Vitae

Biography

Veronica Mockler was born in Quebec City in 1991. She graduated with distinction from Concordia University in Studio Arts (2014) after studying abroad in the Republic of Ireland to complete her degree. Veronica has since been based in Montreal, where she lives and works as an interdisciplinary artist. Her work is at the intersection of conceptual art, documentary and social engagement. Mockler’s video work is represented by distributor Vidéographe. The artist’s work has been featured in exhibitions and festivals in Canada, the USA, South America and Europe. Mockler has been the recipient of public and private funding for her work with communities as well as for her research abroad. In 2017 she co-founded the art collective VISIBLE, which specializes in documentary immersive performance.

Statement

Through video, performance and interview, I work with individuals to present their reality and voice to audiences in order to socially challenge these given audiences. I hope to fill part of the gap that technology created between real human interaction and virtual media connectedness. I believe art is one of the rare remaining occasions in which human relatability can genuinely occur. This is why I use live performance and documentary practices as artistic mediums to counter discrimination. I am driven by the idea that the direct presence of someone is politically transformative and that one's existence and opinions are worthy of art; of the art space; of the art world. I develop work in and out of the gallery space by addressing social stigmas in the white cube and by summoning sheltered folks into the real world. I personally hold any art production socially accountable and thereby dedicate my practice to the overthrow of rigid conservative and capitalist ideals. By putting forth work that serves the agencies of other individuals and groups, I am also attempting to deconstruct my own privilege. I am always looking for new collaborators.

The First Listing

Series of performances | Ongoing

The First Listing is a performance part of a series the artist developed initially in 2012. In each rendition, Mockler goes on to list aloud everything that she is and everything that she is not at that specific time, in front of an audience.

This work was presented in the Intermedia-Cyberart Performances in Concordia University during January 2012.

Title of work : The Left Point
Description of work : Single-channel video installation
High-Definition Color and Sound
Year of completion : 2017
Exhibition setting : Large scale projection
Work description : The Left Point is an attempt to make the audience realize the extent to which their understanding of news events can be manipulated. Through extreme censorship, the artist deliberately removes any possibility of accurate interpretation by suppressing the very opinions and discussions she set out to expose.
This video-episode is the first of a series of works where entertainment, fake news and clickbait tactics are put to the test. The initial performances and footage of this first episode were produced in post Brexit-referendum Belfast, Northern Ireland in November 2016 in the midst of Donald Trumps final ascendancy to presidency. The artist asked 10 inviduals who identify as progressives to sit down and disagree with one another.
