CONNECTING - PETER EVANCHUCK 

'KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID.''
By Peter Evanchuck
I was recently in Toronto watching a buddy, and his musician pals lay down tracks of their original music. These guys are all, and most were, in their day quite famous.
Shawn O'Connor, (originally from Saint John ), gathered all the musicians for the event and hired the sound studio.
Very pro, very impressive I thought as my gaze drifted over the sound mixing board. These days, I seldom get to 'sit in' on significant studio events. Even in today's world of everyone having a mini-studio connected to their computer. I thought this was unusual -  seemed too big; looked like a setup more for established pop musicians feasting in the glory of fame and fortune than these guys who had their day.
Anyway, there they were laughing, joking and tuning up their instruments in one of Toronto's major sound studios.
Shawn, bless his creative soul, was at 60 still plugging away not giving up the creative life for the humdrum life of safety, security and a large RRSP.
It starts, it goes. We all enjoy the atmosphere, the skills. All the guys are looking and sounding so pro. At 1G a day it sounded fine.
Then, the catastrophe that so often destroys the spontaneous originality of exceptional music 'of the moment' began. One musician wanted to tweak a riff then tweak more and a bit more until the unique quality of the spontaneous originality was gone.... more tweaking and more tweaking. The hours built up and, the overtime started and the 1G became 1.5G and grew.
'Keep it Simple Stupid' was gone ... gone into the oblivion of intellect of too much thinking that led to too much tweaking and well the day was over, and I had gone back to my little world where tweaking is not allowed in my original work anymore. Yes, long ago I tweaked too like all tweakers and ruined many a scene.
Here in Chipman, New Brunswick, my partner Helene Lacelle and I are keeping it very simple (I'm living with cancer ).  We create small art films, significant short docs, larger simple films crew of two (me and her) and ideas that float through my head like stories that need to be told. No fluff, no silly derivative stories - pure and simple images, sounds and, in a way, some are full of fury.

Our 'MARVELOUS REALISM' artwork travels to the TATE EXCHANGE LIVERPOOL




  28TH JULY TO 12TH OF AUGUST 2018

The Venice Vending Machine project is a “collaborative, participatory, inclusive live art public installation”, conceived by Venetian artist Marina Moreno. Its aim is to question the role and the value of Art in our society, whilst aiming to promote emerging artists alongside some famous and established ones. It creates an intriguing game for the participants who feel compelled to enjoin and involve themselves in a dialogue that the artist Marina creates in posing the question:
“HOW DO YOU VALUE ART?”
Since the first Venice Vending Machine installation, it has involved over 400 artists from all over the world and has attracted professionals such as curators, art historians and art collectors while extending the possibility of an encounter with people that normally would not be interested in “Art”.
Unlike past VVM events, and in keeping with the spirit of this Tate Exchange Liverpool the acquisition of a work of art will depend uniquely on a dialogue about the notion of art in our society and culture with no monetary exchange, focusing only on the intrinsic value of art.
