    The Small Walker Press announces its third title for 2020: Videopoetry/Vidéopoésie, by Daniel H. Dugas and Valerie LeBlanc, a volume that combines text, images, and dynamic media into an immersive experience.

    Canadian digital artist and videopoet Valerie LeBlanc and Canadian poet, musician, and videopoet Daniel H. Dugas have been working together since 1990.

    Daniel H. Dugas was born in Montréal, QC. Poet, videographer, essayist and musician, Dugas has exhibited and participated in exhibitions, festivals and literary events in Canada and internationally. His ninth book of poetry, L’esprit du temps/The Spirit of the Time, won the 2016 Antonine-Maillet-Acadie Vie award and the 2018 Éloizes: Artiste de l’année en littérature. daniel.basicbruegel.com | Videos distributed through: vtape.org

    Pluridisciplinary artist and writer, Valerie LeBlanc was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She has worked and presented throughout Canada and internationally. LeBlanc’s first video, Homecoming, was collected and screened by the National Gallery of Canada. She is the creator of the MediaPackBoard (MPB), a portable screening / performance device. valerie.basicbruegel.com | Videos distributed through: vtape.org

    “Their specific uniqueness within the videopoetry world also lies in the musicality of speaking two languages. LeBlanc’s first language is English and her second French; and Dugas’ is French with English second.” (Sarah Tremlett).

    Professor Derek Knight of the Department of Visual Arts remarks about this latest addition to the collection of the Small Walker Press: “The sheer volume and complexity of Videopoetry/Vidéopoésie at 400 plus pages was daunting enough, but with a keen eye, a facility for both French and English, and an unbounded curiosity for the imaginative nature of Daniel H. Dugas and Valerie LeBlanc’s poetry and time-based work, Catherine’s efforts have resulted in a worthy digital publication.”
