Neg­a­tive pho­tos at Beaulne

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion by artist pho­tog­ra­pher Jean Grothé, from 07 July to 08 Septem­ber 2013. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited. The ex­hi­bi­tion,

shows the re­sult of the work of the artist pho­tog­ra­pher Jean Grothé car­ried out in 2011 and 2012 thanks to the Artist-in-Res­i­dence pro­gram of the City of Coat­i­cook. Cer­tainly, ele­ments of the re­gion’s ter­ri­tory can be found, but per­ceived through the eyes of the pho­tog­ra­pher and trans­posed into his po­etic uni­verse. In an ex­cep­tional and amaz­ing way, he makes us see the beauty of the world as the owl does, and can we haz­ard a guess, can see very clearly in the dark ...

“Pho­tog­ra­phy for me is a sen­sory and sen­sual ex­pe­ri­ence. Con­se­quently, my im­ages are cor­re­spon­dences, or as Stieglitz stated, ex­pe­ri­en­tial equiv­a­lences,” he says.

For the se­ries Coat­i­cook en lu­mière noire, he has re­sorted to print­ing in neg­a­tive. The ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes thirty works.

Jean Grothé has shown his work in solo and group exhibitions in Canada, Europe and Shang­hai. His works are lo­cated in

sev­eral pri­vate col­lec­tions. He has re­ceived var­i­ous dis­tin­guish­ing marks, in­clud­ing the Award of Ex­cel­lence SIDIM (In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion of In­te­rior De­sign Mon­treal) in 2012.
