Program Description:

“Dead Ringer” is a feature length documentary film that focuses on Casa Loma, investigating the way the building functions as a microcosm for the larger city, in terms of Toronto’s history as a stand-in for American cities in cinema. The film will explore questions about identity and representation and ultimately asks, “What does it mean to see your city reflected back to you, but not your experience?” The film will screen at Toronto City Hall during Ontario Culture Days 2022.

Artist Biography:

Dave Dyment is a Canadian artist and curator. His practice investigates the way that culture is formed, used and remixed, exploring themes of identity, history, copyright, appropriation, etc. Using what he calls a VCRchaeology approach, much of his work has mined fictional films for their documentary truths, while exploring tropes and memes in cinema in an attempt to better understand the language of film, and the forces that shape culture. Dyment was the 2008 artist-in-residence at the Glenfiddich distillery in Dufftown, Scotland and was an Chalmers Arts Fellow in 2009. He is the co-Director of Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre in Sackville.
