Re:Location Free Online Premiere Episode 1 Josema Zamorano

January 18, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Follow this video series about art, migration, identity, and transformation. Five master artists relate the highs and lows of integrating to Canadian life, while retaining their Latin American identities. Each free online premiere relates a relocation journey of a major Latin American artist, and how the transition from home country to Canada informed their visions and accomplishments.

How are their two homes different? What transformations and challenges are unique to the Canadian experience, and the experiences of artists? In what ways do they feel themselves to be different—from the way they were before, from their peers in their native country, and from other Canadian artists? Re:Location brings the works and thoughts of Latin American cultural workers in Canada to a wider audience, creates a sense of pride and belonging to new generations of Latin Americans in Canada, and gives Canadians at large a broader view of their own ever-evolving society.


Episode 1 – Josema Zamorano

The work of Nayarit-Mexico native Josema Zamorano often critiques the languages used by modernity to construct reality: the camera, the method, the image, and the concrete. In experimental and sometimes performative or interactive ways, he explores how the movement of eyes, body, and comprehension, in a changing world, transform and connect appearances and meanings. His journey to Canada has helped advance his interest in how we understand and interpret the world through science and technology, poetry, philosophy and visual arts.

He did graduate studies at the National University of Mexico (UNAM), University of Surrey (UK), holds a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies (University of British Columbia) and has taught for over twenty years a variety of topics, from electrical-circuits design and philosophy of technology to critical inquiry, art-based research, and Spanish.

His artwork has been included in several group and individual exhibitions in Mexico, Canada, Germany, and Spain.. He is the author of the book “Nahui Ollin or the Physics of Desire: a Philosophiae Naturalis” (2022).

Watch the first free online premiere of Re:Location that showcases Josema’s journey, available on January 18, 2023 or read his blog post.
