The International Festival of Films on Art Online - 38th edition from March 17 to 29, 2020

Focus Alexandre Larose

A first retrospective in America on Alexandre Larose’s works, a Montreal filmmaker whose interest lies in working with cinematographic images, shooting landscapes, portraits, and interiors. This selection celebrates the research of the artist and his work with light, reuniting various iterations of brouillard, the series that made him famous. Each piece presents an accumulation of trajectories on film, as he walks along the paths with his camera, superposing the images through in-camera editing. This “man with a movie camera” of the 21st century brings forth spaces which transform and dissolve before your very eyes.

A discussion between the artist and Nicole Gingras will follow the retrospective.
