BLOW-UP

Dir. Michelangelo Antonioni (UK: 1966), 111 min. This film is about a London Fashion photographer Thomas (played by David Hemmings.) He takes images of a couple in the park one afternoon and the subject in the photos is not impressed that she was photographed. The woman in the images begs for the film, but intrigued, Thomas gives her different roll of film and goes to develop the film at his studio. He notices something suspicious in the background of the images. As he blows up the images larger and uncovers details, he realizes that he may have photographed a murder.

Éliane Excoffier: Series 1996-2011

The gallery is pleased to present our second solo exhibition of photographs by Éliane Excoffier, which will feature an overview of her work to date. The exhibition will coincide with the launch of her new catalogue Éliane Excoffier: bilan 1996–2008, co-published by the Musée régional de Rimouski, Galerie Simon Blais and Stephen Bulger Gallery, and featuring an essay by Bernard Lamarche.

ÉLIANE EXCOFFIER
Series 1996-2011

Exhibition Dates: February 25 – March 24, 2012
Reception for the Artist: Saturday, February 25, 2-5pm

Over the course of her photographic career, Excoffier has focused on exploring the dark and physical links that bind the history of photography and its techniques with the representation of the female body. In her first series, Rituels (1996), Excoffier’s depiction of the body considers the model against which women judge themselves. Often anorexic in form, the moving and ghostly figures blend with their environment as a means of making their disappearance visible.

Dualité #1, 1997

Dualité #3, 1997

Excoffier’s second series, Dualité (1997), affirms her interest in the history of photography and how it informs interpretations of the female body. Reminiscent of Muybridge’s female figure studies in motion, Dualité was also created in reaction to Lexique de beauté by Claudette de Sèves in 1935, which imparted the rules that women should abide by to maintain their beauty. Excoffier superimposes negatives to create a dual image that illustrates the struggle between women’s personal aspirations and society’s expectations. In 1999, Excoffier continued her investigation into the rules of beauty in Petit lexique de beauté. In this series, her female subjects perform similar gestures to those in Dualité, but through the process of overprinting and the effect of blurring, Excoffier undermines the appeal of traditional beauty.


Petit lexique de beauté #17, 1999

Obscures (2004), is influenced by historical erotic photographs and also marks the beginning of Excoffier’s experimentation with historical techniques. Using a pinhole camera, Excoffier creates dramatic and crude images of the female body that imply an element of mystery; a fleeting and accidental moment captured for the voyeur’s gaze. In Obscures (série no. 2) (2006), she continues this exploration with a larger format Kodak Camera from 1914 and both film and paper negatives. The film negatives allow a more defined image, while the paper negatives have a richer tonality of imprecise details. Both invite the voyeur’s gaze without satisfying it.



Obscures VI, 2004



Obscures (série no. 2) - 01, 2006

The exhibition will also include work from her most recent series, Chambres (et autres histoires photographiques) (2011), which gives pride of place to objects and challenges Excoffier by working outside of a studio setting for the first time. All small in size, the works, like those preceding it, evoke narratives tinged with an implicit mystery.

Chambres (et autres histoires photographiques) #15, 2011

Excoffier (b. St. Jérôme, Québec, 1971) lives and works in Montréal. She graduated with a degree in Visual Arts and Art History from the University of Montréal in 1996. Her work can be found in the collections of Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, Montréal; Banque Nationale, Montréal; Loto-Québec, Montréal; Giverny Capital, Montréal; Fondation MontMartFund, Paris; Prêts d'oeuvres d'art du Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec, Québec; amongst others.

"With Light and Lines, Framing a Moment

Q. When did you take this photo?

A. I had just started as an intern, and my editor was trying to get me out there. He suggested I cover the race, so I covered quite few different rallies and events. This is a celebration party for the governor, Bob McDonnell...." By Kerri Macdonald, Lens
