The Armoury Gallery is pleased to announce its first ‘one-night-only’ event, featuring the videos, slideshows and text that comprise the “We’re Anonym.us” project. Accompanying paintings will be exhibited, created by the filmmaker Brian Perkins specifically for this event. The artwork will be on display until 10:00 pm and it will be accompanied by a related photographic slideshow.

A video screening will take place at 7:30 and run about 40 minutes, featuring a newly edited assembly of all webisodes and slideshows created for the website, with new entr'acte video segments.

A statement from the filmmaker, Brian Perkins:

“We're Anonym.us" is a multimedia, dream-like fable created in a format that is unlike anything we are aware of. Serialized in thirteen parts on the internet and told in videos, slideshows and text, it relates the story of the writing, delivery and reception of anonymous letters. Like a cross between "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Trial", "We're Anonym.us" is a mixture of fantasy, sly humor, and menace.
