Gallery 2: Something Fishy
by Charles-Andre' Lemire
This installation explores the paradoxal thematics of suspension and weight through two different mediums. On one side,
a moving image of a man falling from the sky but stuck in a limbo of repetition. Suspended in time and space,
his continuous fall (or ascent?) goes from a chaotic and disturbed event to a stabilized position, then back again.
On the other side and facing the video, a bench with a photo under a rock. As the movement floats in the air, the still image is prisoner. This eerie sight is hidden, blocked, under this punishment left on a bench, grounded.
My work is about forms, shapes and their narratives. It's about material, about what we see and how we see it. It takes shape in loops, that can create a new narrative through repetition.
Our lives are made of these little repetitions that can be comforting, boring, disturbing.
I like to take a snap of this life, like an old biology sketch,
where you can dissect with your eyes a moment of time.
