Next Exhibition - Bertrand Carrière: Après Strand - Opening April 6th


The gallery is pleased to announce our sixth exhibition of work by Bertrand Carrière.

BERTRAND CARRIÈRE
Après Strand

Exhibition Dates: April 6 – May 4, 2013
Closing Reception and Book Signing: Saturday, May 4, 2-5pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, May 4, 1-2pm; RSVP as seating is limited

 “Après Strand” revisits a part of photographic history through the work of American photographer Paul Strand and his connection to Carrière’s own territory, Québec.

During the summer of 2010, Carrière travelled to the Gaspé Peninsula, following the route that Strand took in 1929 and 1936. From his two trips to Gaspésie, Strand produced a number of pictures, but few are known to the general public. These two expeditions were brief, but they marked a turning point in his career as he began to tackle the problems raised by a photographic depiction of landscape and, as a result, he became the precursor of a new vision.  When referring to the Gaspésie photographs, Strand said, "Their importance is that they were the first more systematic, conscious efforts to organize a landscape and its elements, all its elements.” Strand’s first trip was dedicated to the landscapes and his second was about making portraits of the people who lived there. These two trips formed what Strand defined as the essential character of a place.

 
Saint-Maurice-de-L’Échouerie, Gaspésie, 2010

Carrière’s photographs adopt Strand's vision of photography and his approach to landscape. While deliberately avoiding imitation, he allowed himself to absorb Strand's lessons, observing time, memory and landscape. Carrière is fascinated with stories that are bound to the land, traces of which persist to this day. His attention was drawn to the social landscape and vernacular architecture, documenting modest houses, barns, fishermen's cabins and wayside crosses. He photographed some of the inhabitants he met, trying to be faithful to a humanistic approach, out of respect for the people who have shaped the land and have kept these remote communities alive, while struggling with an unforgiving climate and difficult socioeconomic conditions.

 
Jean-Luc Quinton, L’Anse-au-Griffon, Gaspésie, 2010

The Gaspésie that Strand documented no longer exists, but Carrière’s work was deeply inspired by the places Strand photographed. He also had the chance to meet with, and photograph, the grandson of one of Strand's subjects. During the summer of 2010, Carrière travelled 5,000 miles, along route 132, looking for that essential character that Strand tried to capture.

Chafaud, Carleton-su-Mer, Gaspésie, 2010

Carrière teaches photography at André-Laurendeau College in Montréal and he actively exhibits and publishes his work across North America and Europe. He has published a number of photographic books, which include: Après Strand (2012) with Musée régional de Rimouski;  Lieux Mêmes (2010) with L’instant même; Ground Level (2009) with Sagamie; Témoin de l’ombre (1995), Voyage à domicile (1997),  Signes de jour (2002) and Dieppe, Landscapes and installations (2006) with Les 400 Coups.  Carrière’s work can be found in many prominent collections including: Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris; Cinémathèque québécoise, Montréal; Canadian Centre of Architecture, Montréal; Canadian War Museum, Ottawa; Collection du Prêt d’œuvres d’art, Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Québec City; Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, Ottawa; Encontros da Imagem, Braga; Pôle Image de Haute-Normandie, Rouen; Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris; Canadian Council Art Bank, Ottawa; Houston Museum of Fine Arts, Texas; amongst others.

Devant le dépanneur, Gros-Morne, Gaspésie, 2010

Gallery Artist Benoit Aquin Featured in The Gazette

Haiti: Beyond the spectacle of disaster
Two photo exhibitions reach beyond the country’s well-publicized chaos

MONTREAL - Two photographers who have visited Haiti numerous times over the past 15 years are exhibiting images of the Caribbean nation at two local venues.

Benoit Aquin’s McCord Museum exhibition features photographs taken in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, while Leah Gordon’s street portraits of Haitians in carnival costumes are being shown at the PHI Centre.
Aquin is interested in how people cope with their physical environment, Hélène Samson, McCord’s curator of photography, said at an exhibition preview. She noted that Aquin is a documentary photographer whose work is collected by museums of fine arts. (The National Gallery of Canada recently purchased three of Aquin’s photographs of the Chinese dust bowl, where overuse has transformed a huge area of arable land into desert.)

Aquin’s Haiti: Chaos and Daily Life includes photographs of the earthquake’s destruction, Haitians in their temporary shelters, their rituals for dealing with death and scenes of street carnivals.

Academy Award winner Jessica Yu creates a beautiful film that describes his work and immerses the viewer in Darger’s vision of the universe.

Gallery Artist Bertrand Carrière's Current Exhibtion "Lieux Mêmes" at the Agora de la Danse

From now until March 23rd Bertrand Carrière's exhibition Lieux mêmes will be shown at the Agora de la Danse, Montreal.

"Réalisé en France et en Belgique, entre 2005 et 2009, ce projet avait pour but de comprendre ce que la Première Guerre a laissé dans la mémoire du territoire. Ce chemin a mené Bertrand Carrière vers ce que l’on nommait le Front de l’Ouest, de la vallée de la Somme, en Picardie, en Artois dans le Pas de Calais, jusqu’en Belgique, dans les vastes champs de la Flandre. Dans ces paysages autrefois dévastés, empreints de grande noirceur, il a souhaité retrouver la part de cette lumière du Nord qu'il affectionne tant. Il y a dans ces paysages blessés, dans leur topographie toute singulière, une beauté indomptée. Après la destruction, les cris, les hurlements et les plaintes, la terre a guéri, lentement, et s’est renouvelée, la nature y ayant repris ses droits. Or, ce n’est pas tant la guerre qui est au cœur de ce parcours que la volonté de s’approprier ces paysages, afin de dépasser l’écume des faits pour activer une mémoire plus vaste, une mémoire sourde, inscrite dans le territoire. L'histoire, la mémoire, le voyage, le récit, la déambulation sont autant de paradigmes liés au temps et qui font images dans la production photographique de Bertrand Carrière, depuis les tout débuts de son parcours artistique."

Gallery Artist Sanaz Mazinani's Upcoming Exhibition at Gallery 44

Sanaz Mazinani's exhibition Site, Sight and Insight opens Friday March 8th until April 13th, at Gallery 44, Center for Contemporary Photography, Toronto. Opening Reception will take place Friday March 8th from 6pm-9pm.

Please join Sanaz on Saturday March 9th, 2pm-3:30pm for Politics of Sight: A Conversation on the Limitations of the Photographic Image with Alice Dixon, Rosemany Heather and Vid Ingelevics.

"...Toronto and San Francisco-based artist Sanaz Mazinani finds ingenious ways to articulate the act of looking at photographs. Choreographing viewer engagement with the image, she builds into each encounter a process of critical reassessment. Site, Sight, and Insight presents a series of lessons on how the visual language of photography functions as a process, one that is ideologically informed and susceptible to undoing. In works that are seductive, revelatory and politically-informed, Mazinani presents differing approaches to the task of foregrounding an understanding of photography as a cultural construct."

AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY

Dir. Alison Klayman (USA: 2012), 91 min.
Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is a documentary film about the internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist, Ai Weiwei. Weiwei gained international attention through both his ambitious artwork and political provocations. In response the Chinese authorities shut down his blog, assaulted him, bulldozed his studio and held him in a secret custody. The documentary examines the complex connection of artistic practice and social activism through the life and art of China’s leading contemporary artist.
