The Autumn of Love
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Re-working the real, uncovering hidden universes, Roger Guetta evokes figments of thoughts and memories by providing a variety of points of perception within a single image. His photographs are places to visit, where one can find multiple points of experience that exist at the fulcrum of the moment, or in many simultaneous moments.
Guetta's images are captured and edited on the iPhone. More than maps, they are pools which provide depths of interpretation. The artist creates each image as if it is captured within a momentary flux of images, as if nothing were solid or permanent. Instead, it is ephemeral, reflecting the ever changing nature of life and the way we experience it.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Roger Guetta has been involved in the arts, be it theatre, film, writing, painting or photography for forty years. He is professor in the Communications Department at Vanier College in Montreal, a position he has held for the last thirty years.
Roger Guetta's exhibition at Visual Voice Art Gallery consists of a cycle in three acts:
Act 1 - Live Feed/The Autumn Of Love
November 5 and 6, 2011
For two days a continuous flow of musicians, performers, activists, poets and raconteurs will share the gallery space to engage in a free flow of ideas, fed live throughout the internet, in tandem to being video taped by a collective of iPhoneographers for eventual release at festivals and symposiums.
Act 2 - The Autumn Of Love Exhibition
November 12 - 27, 2011
Vernissage: Saturday, November 12, 2011,
3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Guetta's photographic works, shot by and edited within the confines of a mobile device, are printed on hand made rag paper in various sizes and thicknesses to evoke a timeless and ethereal feel to the images. The photographs traverse from the lens of a modern and convenient apparatus to materials which evoke warmth and visceral engagement.
Act 3 - Finissage
November 27, 2011, starting at 3:00 p.m.
