Rising Up

December 26, 2007

Portland based filmmaker and artist Vanessa Renwick collaborated with the People’s History Poster Project and audio artist Donovan Skirvin to create an installation entitled Rising Up at the Tollbooth Gallery. Renwick’s filmmatic subject matter ranges from gray wolves to library books, obsessive collagists to pro-life advocates, and the lives of truckers to her own bare-foot hitchhiking. Her work has been described as “delightfully idiosyncratic” and “rigorously experimental.” What follows are excerpts from an interview with the artist about her work, and her intentions with “Rising Up.”
