From April 12 to May 17 2022, the Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle will host the exhibition The Ambiguous mirror, by John Graham.
Multidisciplinary artist and experimental filmmaker, John Graham entwines art practices by drawing inspiration from poetic narration that he mixes with kinetic concepts in order to conceive new visual interpretations inspired, most definitely, by a surreal universe.
The exhibition features an installation of digital photo-collages with experimental dance films. The still imagery presents enigmatic visual narratives as reconfigured historic “Wild West” imagery. The 4 dreamlike videos are tinged with silent film influences. His “video-dances” are the result of collaborations from two artist residencies (Budapest and Montreal) and have been viewed in more than a hundred film festivals around the world. Each of these body of works uniquely explores the lyricism of the subconscious and the complex nature of inner knowledge.
Le Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council, Canadian Heritage, the City of Ottawa, AGAVF, Marcil Lavallée and the Caisse Desjardins Ontario for their support.
There Will Come Soft Rains
From March 1 to April 2, 2022, the Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle will host the exhibition There Will Come Soft Rains, by Christopher Payne.
The artist is an “art farmer” who probes the relationship between objects, mediation and culture. He holds an MFA from the University of Ottawa and has participated in numerous exhibitions in Canada and elsewhere. He was originally trained in cinema, then his work and interests broadened to include sound, sculpture, video art, and virtual spaces. With his exhibition, he explores the richness and emptiness left by the experience of virtual reality as well as the interrelationships that operate between a medium and its properties.
