Video art

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Len­noxville

Itis with great plea­sure that we an­nounce the launch of a new ex­hi­bi­tion se­ries at the Fore­man Art Gallery - Videotank. We have re­served a dark­ened space in the gallery for the pro­jec­tion of contemporary video art. The first artist to project in this space is East­ern Town­ships based me­dia artist Sébastien Pe­sot. He will be pre­sent­ing Feu Forêt (a word play, in French, be­tween ‘for­est fire’ and ‘will-o’wisp’), a large-scale pro­jec­tion show­ing a burn­ing Christ­mas tree. This ab­surd and fa­tal vi­sion of­fers the epit­ome of the term: light­ing the flame in­evitably lead to its ex­tinc­tion. Sébastien Pe­sot has pro­duced sev­eral ex­per­i­men­tal videos which have been screened in twenty dif­fer­ent coun­tries. Since then he has mainly been pro­duc­ing audio-video in­stal­la­tions, while con­tin­u­ing to work on per­for­mance art and com­puter graph­ics.

Please join us for a dou­ble open­ing re­cep­tion with the ex­hi­bi­tion Over the Rain­bow, Un­der the Radar of artist Charles Stankievech as well as an artist talk at 6pm on Septem­ber 15, 2011.
