Lyla Rye: Cyclorama
Contributors: Caiomhe Morgan-Feir, James Campbell

Cyclorama is the happy outcome of a collaboration between the Southern Alberta Art Gallery and the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington (VAC), and the multi-talented artist, Lyla Rye.  Featuring still images, single channel videos, and mixed media installations, Cyclorama looks to the theatrical curtain as a device to conflate illusion and reality, dreaming and wakefulness, audience and participant.  Between the "cyclorama," typically a concave curtain at the rear, and the front curtains framing the scene, the stage becomes a liminal zone between everyday life and the imaginary world at play.
