|Seriously, what could anyone possibly learn about ART from a redneck Saskatchewan farmer? Well, don’t be surprised when Uncle Eddie turns the tables and takes up the defence of art.
Sit down with Uncle Eddie (Norman Nawrocki) in his kitchen when he's drunk and sober, healthy and dying. All is revealed to us in stories of friends and family, cooking and gardening.
Nawrocki’s performance is riveting and moving. It's like visiting a relative who has nothing in common with us. Sometimes it's amusing, sometimes it's scary, and sometimes it leads us to unexpected insights about our world.
Uncle Eddie is art, the artist and art's worse enemy.
This intense monologue with multimedia projections was written by Montreal art critic and artist, Don Goodes. It pays Homage to his Ukrainian and Romanian prairie peasant roots, while exploring how this ancestry has survived and influenced his cosmopolitain, urban life.
