Description
Hollis Frampton generated the alphabetical permutations for Reason over Passion / La Raison avant la Passion, which offers 537 algorithmically determined combinations of the letters in the title, Pierre Elliot Trudeau's most characteristic motto was meant to be a strategic goal for Canada’s future and the possibility of some sort of unity between the French and the English. Combinations of these letters are superimposed over a fast-motion trip through the landscapes of Canada. In tracing the contours of those landscapes from one coast to the next, Wieland points out the hugely varied specifics of the «here» of Canada while continuing to contest any simple conclusions about individual passion for the landscape and political behaviour. To Joyce Wieland, however, as a woman, as an artist (who worked with textiles undervalued as women’s craft not high art), and as a passionate Canadian nationalist, “Passion over Reason” described more of her own approach to art and life.

Bio
Joyce Wieland (1930–1998) began her career as a painter in Toronto before moving to New York in 1962, where she soon achieved renown as an experimental filmmaker. The 1960s and 1970s were productive years for Wieland, as she explored various materials and media and as her art became assertively political, engaging with nationalism, feminism, and ecology. She returned to Toronto in 1971. In 1987 the Art Gallery of Ontario held a retrospective of her work. Wieland was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the 1990s, and she died in 1998.
