"Berwick Tweed Deathbeetle" conjures an extrinsic journey, a flaneur through contemporary Britain. The track is a cycle of electronic washes under gale warnings radioed to ships at sea. Both danger and comfort are inscribed in a spatial nostalgia summoned through local experience. Consider also the return to a quiet interior with the sounds of the ever-present beetle overcome by the measured announcements of safety at sea.
Christopher McNamara is a Windsor, Ontario/Ann Arbor, Michigan based multi-media artist. His current works tend towards ruminations on city life, domestic spaces within those cities, shifting borders and identity, the spectral voices from the radio and unintended meanings in the cinema. His work has been shown in galleries and museums throughout Canada including Western Front in Vancouver, YYZ and Mercer Union in Toronto, Galerie B 312 in Montréal, the Khyber Art Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Macintosh Gallery in London, Ontario, the Art Gallery of Windsor, Binz 39 in Zürich, Switzerland, The Thames Art Gallery in Chatham, Ontario and The Robert McLaughlin Museum in Oshawa, Ontario
In addition to his video work, McNamara has worked with three distinct audio art collectives: Thinkbox, Nospectacle and Noiseborder Ensemble. In 2019, McNamara released “Shorelights” – a double album collaboration with Rod Modell and Walter Wasacz on the Barcelona record label, Subwax.
McNamara is a Lecturer in the Department of Screen Arts & Culture at the University of Michigan where he teaches courses in New Media production. He is the recipient of numerous awards and grants including the Canada Council for the Arts Explorations grant as well as the Joan Chalmers Foundation.
