Vernissage : January 22 at 5 p.m.
From January 17 to February 17, 2015, the exhibition Révélations anticipées, by Janie Julien-Fort, will take place at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle.
The project shows an installation of abstract and figurative photos assembled to form constellations. The images are reminiscent of ancient photography, but show contemporary subjects. The artist finds inspiration in fatalist speeches from scientists and environmental groups, creating an imaginary space where the viewer is invited to contemplate the present’s future, as if it was a premonitory vision. Technically, Janie Julien-Fort works with images created with a Camera Obscura, which negatives are chemically tampered with in the dark room. Thus, the falling to ruin images, paired with the subject matter, bring the viewer back to his own fragility.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, January 22 at 5 p.m. at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle. The gallery is located at 67 Beechwood Avenue (2nd floor), in Vanier, and is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday.
