Long before the arrival of photography, humans wanted to document the various geometric shapes that surround them by using mathematical calculations, as well as artistic representations, in paintings or drawings. True to their perception, the Florentine painters were the first to use the camera obscura to achieve a fairer representation, in two dimensions, of cathedrals, monuments and bridges.
Following the discovery of the latent image* which could finally be affixed to its support, photography replaced painting. If architectural painting was then released from solely representing reality, would this then apply to structural photography? Be it a building, a sculpture or a bridge, humans often feel the need to represent reality. Are we still required to obtain a tangible representation of reality? Will the artist be able to rid themselves of pre-established concepts surrounding structural representation?
The International Digital Miniprint Exhibition, 10th edition, will take place at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle, from November 5 to December 8, 2015. Curated by Alex Leblanc, the exhibition explores the theme of digital STRUCTURE.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, November 5 at 5 p.m. at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle. Three prizes will be awarded at the opening: Desjardins Prize (1st prize), Voix Visuelle Prize (2nd prize) and Marcil Lavallée Prize (3rd prize). 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.
