Opening Reception: Saturday, September 6, 2014, 2 – 5pm
Requiem for a Glacier is an expansive video installation by Paul Walde, featuring a four-movement oratorio performed by an orchestra and chorus atop the Farnham Glacier in the Jumbo Glacier area of eastern British Columbia.
The collection of five glaciers that make up the ancient features of Jumbo, or “Qat’muk”, are left over from the last ice age. Now, they are under immediate threat from climate change and resort development.
Over thirty-seven minutes, Requiem for a Glacier features panoramic glacier views along with the sounds and images of the oratorio, as performed by the Requiem Volunteer Orchestra and Chorus (conducted by Ajtony Csaba of the University of Victoria Symphony).
Paul Walde, Requiem for a Glacier, video still, 2013.
