Interdisciplinary artist, performer, and filmmaker CAROLE ITTER was born in Vancouver in 1939. For about thirty-five years, she joined the multidisciplinary artist, Al Neil, at his cabin which sat on pilings on Burrard Inlet near Dollarton. They worked together and also separately as the place was transformed by assemblages that stretched between cedar trees and over boulders. They were evicted from this place in about 2014 and threatened by immediate demolition by Vancouver's Port Authority. A multitude of art administrators and movers and shakers of all sorts stepped in. Five years later, the little Blue Cabin sits on a new barge in False Creek near the Plaza of Nations. It functions as an artists' residency for international and local artists. In 2018, Itter developed a story which has become an eight-minute film, collaborating with the filmmaker, Allison Hrablick. This fictional film, Please Meet The Geese Who Have Lived Here Forever, tells the story of wild geese on Burrard Inlet who are chased from their refuge towards a dubious future.
