Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal :
Drone, L'image automatisée


*The exhibition is extended until October 17th*
For its 13th edition, Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal has invited renowned British curator Paul Wombell to develop an exhibition program around his theme, Drone: The Automated Image. From September 5 to October 5, 2013, 25 exhibitions deployed in different sites will transform the city into a vast yet coherent photography exhibition. This event will chart the changing relationship between the camera and the human body.

There are two recurring subjects in Elina Brotherus’s video Artists at Work (2010) and her photographic series 12 ans après (1999–2012): the artist herself and the camera. Given her long-time interest in the representation of artist as model, Brotherus features predominantly in virtually all of her photographs and videos. The self-portraits picture her in expansive landscapes or in claustrophobic rooms, portraying a range of different emotions, from melancholy to anger, from perplexity to serenity. The other subject is the camera. Sometimes the cable release can be seen winding along the floor toward her hands, leaving the camera off image. In more recent works, the camera is present in her photographs, sharing the space with the artist.

For its 13th edition, Le Mois de La Photo à Montréal, in collaboration with OPTICA, a centre for contemporary art, will feature 12 ans après by Elina Brotherus.
