The archives of the National Naval Institute were founded in 1985 after the donation of the personal effects of Robin Quickly. The donation, which mostly consisted of postcards, was given to the institute without any explanation of the items. Robin Quickly, though never in the navy, was a well-traveled sailor. Twenty years after the archives were founded a documentary crew started on the journey to uncover the life of Robin Quickly.


Kim Kielhofner is an artist working in video, drawing, and artist books. She holds a BFA from Concordia University (2007, Montreal, QC) and Master’s from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (2010, London, UK). Her work has been shown in festivals and galleries in North America, Europe and Asia. Her work in video, uses techniques and footage from diverse cultural spaces, from cinema to the music video to the home movie, brought together under narrative forms. The narrative sometimes punctuates, sometimes connects the image and sound. Timing, pacing, and the quality of the image itself play off of each other to expand the space and create a layering of histories and meanings.
