Very Good Advice

Jenn E Norton

2009, 06:27 minutes, colour, English


“Locating herself slyly in that world that is ‘through’ the Looking Glass, Toronto-based artist Jenn E Norton inhabits the digital equivalent of Wonderland with her work Very Good Advice. She’s not quite here and yet not ‘away’ either. It’s up for discussion. Vulnerable in the way that small urban animals are, she rests in a space of both incipient danger and latent redemption. Will she stay or will she go? Either way, it’s a lovely ride, full of lithe humour and visual delight, tempered with the dark-side potential for total annihilation lurking, if not on screen, at least in our imagination.” – Lisa Steele
