Textures of the Digital World
School of Photographic Arts Ottawa
Sep. 3, 2023 - Oct. 31, 2021
The SPAO Centre Gallery is thrilled to present Intimate Textures of the Digital World featuring the work of Gatineau-based artist AM Dumouchel, Montreal-based artist Gilles Tarabiscuité and Vancouver-based Haida artist Jaad Kuujus (Meghann O’brien). The artists in this exhibition negotiate between digital and physical spaces, continually asking viewers to orient themselves between physicality and abstraction. The artworks capture a tactile and sensory subject matter, despite the mediation of the lens in two-dimensions. Viewers are encouraged to explore intimate conversations of metamorphosis, belonging and manual labour while also discovering their place between virtuality and reality.
