Lancement de To Be Alive And Forget This de Nick Kline & Jean-François Bérubé, le mercredi 28 mai à 17h à Formats

Formats est heureux de vous convier au lancement de TO BE ALIVE AND FORGET THIS de Nick Kline & Jean-François Bérubé, le mercredi 28 mai, dès 17h.

TO BE ALIVE AND FORGET THIS est une conversation visuelle entre l’artiste New-yorkais et le photographe québécois créée dans le village de Causapscal, Québec, un lieu mondialement reconnu pour sa pêche au saumon et une toute autre particularité : son taux de suicide historique.

Les artistes vous convient à cet événement/installation qui est en lien avec l’exposition Stony Bottom Rocky Point, présentée à la galerie Occurrence jusqu’au 21 juin, et avec la résidence que Nick Kline mène à Artexte jusqu’au 30 mai.

To Be Alive and Forget This is an artists’ publication that is a visual conversation between NYC based artist Nick Kline and Montreal based photographer Jean-François Bérubé. Double sided, Kline’s photographs of textured and patterned rubber silicone castings from cut trees meet Bérubé’s portraits of people, personal snapshots and landscapes. Both series were created in the village of Causapscal, Quebec, Canada, though known for its world-class salmon fishing, it has another distinction: historically high rates of self-inflicted death. The rotation of the book structure as well as experiments with balance and centering, attempts to exemplify the turbulent struggle of many who survive the loss of loved ones who committed suicide.
The event/installation at Formats is in relationship with Kline’s current exhibition at Occurrence Gallery titled Stony Bottom Rocky Point, and his Residency at Artexte.
