ENGLISH BIO: David Rimmer is one of Canada’s most prolific avant-garde filmmakers, having established a critical reception for his work since the mid 1960s. A contemporary of artists such as Michael Snow, Rimmer’s work has developed over the years through a prolonged engagement with the filmic subject and the altered phenomenological experience it creates in the viewer through the medium of film. Rimmer is especially noted for a body of work made in the 1970s called the “self-reflexive” pieces, which include works such as Surfacing on the Thames (1970) and Variations on a Cellophane Wrapper (1970). These works explore the nature of the film materials and how the medium constructs illusions of movement, depth and presence. His practice has also encompassed documentary films that have profiled performance artists and artworks as well as numerous films inspired by his travels. His films illustrate the qualities of “an exemplary craftsperson” as described by the Canadian film critic and writer Bruce Elder, displaying the subtleties and intricacies of their making that are maintained throughout his practice.
