About the Artist

About the Exhibition



Confronting us with what remains of photography in agony, Joan Fontcuberta gives to see images that have suffered the effects of time. We could say that they were eaten away by time, but also that they have been devoured by living organisms%u2014snails and microscopic creatures. Photography gives us to believe that it is sick, dying, or already dead, in pieces, beyond recognition. But it also unabashedly offers images of its wounds, glorifying them as the work of time. Photography never really dies completely; it bears the traces of its whole life and makes space for new images.

This exhibition is part of the Inventing Risk programming, which invites us to reconsider the way we make art and the way we think the image.

Joan Fontcuberta would like to acknowledge Sylvie Bussières, Mar Sorribas, Erik Pachecho. The artist would also like to thank André Barrette, Denis Thibeault and Charles-Frédérick for the production of the prints.
