Photo sculpture

An exhibition presented jointly by OBORO and OPTICA

This exhibition presents some of the numerous artistic practices that explore the multiple relationships between photography and sculpture.

Photographic sculpture (where the merging of the two is strongest), sculpture which structures itself according to the parameters of the photographic, photographs integrated into a sculptural framework that refer to media or aesthetic contexts of viewing, incursions in the realms of landscape and portraiture, the deployment of viewing devices, the presentation of sculpture by photography ... these are some of the strategies through which photography literally invades the sculptural, through which the sculptural is disrupted and reassesed.

The works in this exhibition were created in the context of Studios d'été de St-Jean-Port-Joli, organized by Lesley Johnstone, Marie Fraser, Jacques Doyon, Michel Des Jardins and Jean-Pierre Bourgault.

Artists and members of the organizing committee will participate in a panel discussion on the question of photo sculpture in relation to the works in the exhibition. The artists will also talk about their experience at the Studios d'été de St-Jean-Port-Joli last summer. The catalogue will be launched on this occasion.
