I Can Feel It
8 April – 14 June 2015
Got a Phil Collins’ tune stuck in your head? Blame it on Daniel Cockburn’s I Can Feel It in AGYU Vitrines. Silently rocking out along the Accolade East Building’s corridor, each of the three videos bear a famous Collins’ song with the exact same rhythm and tempo. Lyrics of Collins’ flash on the screen one word at a time: you can feel it in the air… and hear it in your head.
Currently completing his Masters in Film/Cinema and Media Studies at York University, Cockburn is a writer, director, and video maker and has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions internationally. He is the second artist presented in the AGYU’s new series of commissioned works by York MFA and PhD students.
