Street Level Photoworks, Studio Space
Saturday 30th June, 3pm
Bertrand Carrière, artist in residence at Street Level Photoworks, will give an artist talk, presenting his work and his current project. He is keen to meet other artists and photographers.
The talk will center around some of his book projects which explore two main aspects. One being the relation between place and history through landscape work. The other aspect is intimacy and his relation to home and the everyday.
Finally, the talk will address the Lightwaves residency project he is presently working on. He is the last of four participants in an exchange program between Vu in Québec City and Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow. The exhibition of all four participants works is to be presented at Street Level starting September 22nd.
Bertrand Carrière is a photographer and video artist who actively exhibits and publishes his work across Canada and in Europe. Using time, memory and landscapes, he explores stories that are bound to the land, traces of which persist to this day. In other projects, he seaches for the small, marginal moments, détails that mark his way, his family life, his travels, be they dark or luminous.
Carrière’s work is included in numerous collections such as The National Gallery of Canada, Le Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec and The Houston Museum of Fine Arts au Texas. He teaches photography in Montreal and holds a master degree in communication arts from l'Université du Québec.
In his books Dieppe, landscapes and installations and Lieux Mêmes he visited parts of the history of WW1 and WW2 in France and Belgium. In a more recent project, Après Strand, he revisited the work of American photographer Paul Strand, following the route he took in 1929 and 1936 in the Gaspé peninsula in Québec. His latest book Le Capteur is a 10 year photo diary project.
