INSTALLATION AT « RENCONTRES PHOTOGRAPHIQUE DE GASPÉSIE »
+ - 49° 29'
Rencontres hosted Laurent Mulot in May 2015 for a residency in Gaspésie and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence as far as Labrador. During the same period, the French artist presented his exhibit Middle of Nowhere, his generic work, at Joyce Yahouda Gallery in Montreal, in association with Rencontres. The residency project on the other hand was organized around a series of photos and video and sound recordings. The focus of the work is a series of images and sounds relative to tapings made in Le Havre and on the North Sea, in France (central node of Middle of Nowhere), in the perspective of a diptych, notably around the point of latitude 49°29’ North. The work continued in the fashion of a « sea road movie » by freighter to Labrador. The residency project is resulting in a triple exhibition: an exhibit in the Gaspé for Rencontres in 2016, where the outdoor installation presented in Percé consists of two videos with sound and a series of 12 photographs on standards; an exhibit at Joyce Yahouda Gallery in Montreal in 2016-2017; and an exhibit at Galerie Françoise Besson in Lyon, France, in 2017.
