“In the infinite memory of the Web, there is life after death.” From April 8 until May 9, 2017, Voix Visuelle is presenting artist Sophie Cardin’s exhibition, which explores the idea of digital footprints and post-mortem communication.
In RIP & KIT (Rest In Peace and Keep In Touch), an installation of tombstones evoking the digital world questions the desire for immortality that drives us. Just how far is the Internet taking us? Should we be concerned about our digital legacy? Are physical commemoration sites still necessary, even with Facebook providing a deceased person’s friends with a place to gather virtually? This exhibition aims to open the discussion.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, April 13, at 5 p.m. at the 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.
The Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council, Canadian Heritage and the City of Ottawa for their support.
