    Pierre Gonnord, Portraits – Pierre Rannou, The Intensity of the Gaze

    November 5, 2018 [originally published in CV97 in Spring 2014] — Pierre Gonnord’s photographic portraits are fascinating for the experience that they offer us. The models gaze straight at the photographer’s lens, and we are taken aback: we feel like they are staring at us…

    November 2, 2018 [originally published in CV97 in Spring 2014] — Portraits are deceptively alluring: we are immediately attracted to admiring the faces of others. As we are drawn under their spell, the images reveal themselves to be carefully crafted manifestations that must be decoded to be fully understood…

  • Gabriel Coutu-Dumont, The Way of the Willows – Claire Moeder, A New Wrinkle in Portraiture

    October 29, 2018 [originally published in CV97 in Spring 2014] — In Glasgow, the artist Gabriel Coutu-Dumont set up a minimal photography studio on Sauchiehall Street, a street frequented by the city’s night owls. For several nights, he drew these passersby away from the tumult of the street and asked them to pose in front of an analog camera for a twenty-minute session. The result was The Way of the Willows, a gallery of eighty anachronistic ...

    October 24, 2018 [originally published in CV97 in Spring 2014] — The two last decades have seen the growth of a complex phenomenon: exhibition reproductions. A reprise produced as the inclusion of a “period room” doesn’t have the same effects as a complete restaging of a famous precedent in twentieth-century art history…

    October 22, 2018 [originally published in CV97 in Spring 2014] — I discovered Marcel Cognac by chance – a chance presented to those who know how to wait for it, to those who want to understand something about their culture and their country.

    Tacita Dean, Out of Time: A Seeing that Touches – Stephen Horne

    October 17, 2018 [originally published in CV97 in Spring 2014] — This was Winnicott’s response to the difficult challenge of reconciling oneself to one’s own temporality, a favoured problem for artists from On Kawara to Ann Hamilton to Tacita Dean.

    Vincent Lafrance ART SYSTÈME. Magazine d’art et d’idées – Jacques Doyon

    November 18, 2015 [originally published Winter 2015] — Vincent Lafrance’s work is permeated with the idea of the simulacrum – perception and its faults.
