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.
