Michel Cha­land: MR-37 2016, photo col­lage

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

Jean Cocteau Cinema, 418 Mon­tezuma Ave., 505-466-5528 Michel Cha­land draws from Sur­re­al­ist im­agery, in­clud­ing no­table works by René Magritte, to cre­ate an­thro­po­mor­phic, graphic still-life ar­range­ments that con­flate peo­ple and inan­i­mate ob­jects. Cha­land’s com­po­si­tions con­vey a sense of the­atri­cal­ity and a ma­gi­cian’s sleight of hand. The cut photo el­e­ments pop against black back­grounds, ap­pear­ing to float in space. The re­cep­tion is at 5:30 p.m. on Fri­day, April 8.
