Please note that this exhibition is postponed until further notice to ensure the health and safety of our community and to flatten the curve of COVID-19.
This exhibition features works by Patryk Stasieczek that present a continued exploration of the performative ontologies that intermingle within the production of photographic images. These works will be in direct conversation with a curatorial project that features a selection of Stasieczek’s former students at Terminal Creek Contemporary on Bowen Island, BC.
Photographs are an integral component of modern society; their ubiquity reflects their value as actions. Images have accelerated realities and are an indiscernible quality of our current history. As actions, images position an engaged criticality with the world, its surfaces, relations, and affects. As spaces, images are a dialogue and exchange, they operate on the same immediate wavelength. As impulses, images are emptied of their origins through the ways in which they are constructed. When they are looked at and studied, images continue to be emptied of their meaning through a language that pours out of their constructed immediacy and relationships to the body. They situate a vital materiality in the world.
