At the beginning of each year, I usually dress a list of accomplishments. It wasn’t different for 2017 and to mark this first year as a freelance photographer, I had a humongous of goals. Within this list, I wrote down “do a solo and group photo exhibition”.
For this exhibition, I created a new series called ‘Rituels Fluides’ where I explored gender identity with primary colours such as blue & magenta — colours that are typically associated with a specific gender. I wanted to bend this unilateral vision of gender colour association and offer the spectator the choice to decide whether this particular photo is associated with a gender or another. I painted everything myself with spray paint and explored different options with the different items I painted.
Setting up the photo exhibition at le Livart
When we arrived at the gallery, we had a whole empty white room which was the perfect canvas to set up our exhibition.
We had previously visited the gallery to make a plan on where and how we would hang all the artwork/photos.
Hanging the artwork for the photo exhibition
We arrived at le Livart around 10AM to set up the room for the private view later that night.
We checked the prints to see if everything was ok — turned out I was very happy with my prints because I was scared the colours wouldn’t pop as much as I wanted.
The photo exhibition at le Livart
Here are the photos we are showing at the gallery until October 1st.
I’m beyond proud of this first time exhibiting my photos in Montreal.
