Adad Hannah: Cuba Still (Remake)

Organized by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal,
as part of the Momentum touring series.

Born in New York in 1971, Adad Hannah lives and works in Montreal. Cuba Still (Remake) can be seen as a continuation of his series of video-recorded tableaux vivants, begun in the early 2000s. The artist calls these videos "Stills". Starting with a publicity photo for a banal and forgotten film purchased in Havana in 2003, Hannah re-stages the scene, filming individual sequences of each of the six characters from the original photo. The resulting six videos are then simultaneously projected so as to fabricate a single cinematic scene, a tableau vivant, from the separate and apparently motionless video images. The installation in its entirety is comprised of the original photograph, the images of the six characters, some production stills taken during the reenactments, and an ingenious method of projection: six crafted wooden stands with a system of cutout masks. Cuba Still (Remake) masterfully crystallizes notions of the photographic moment and of duration, the contrasting merits of the fixed and the moving image, and the particular nature of photography and film.
Josée Bélisle, Curator of the MACM Collection

The MOMENTUM Series has been made possible with the financial support of the Department of Canadian Heritage through its Museums Assistance Program.

Valerie Salez: Fourth Nature

Acquired through obsessive collecting habits, objects and materials are transformed in Valerie Salez's seemingly playful installations. Decorative and delightful on the surface, her work provokes us to go beyond the seduction of the surface, and question the materiality of the objects, what they represent, and how they are presented. Fourth Nature explores and challenges B&W notions of cultural diversity, caste systems, high and low art forms, aristocratic architectures and humans’ relationship and manipulation of all things natural.  Most of Salez's artworks are installations that rely on collected objects.  The objects she uses are as culturally diverse as her cultural background and upbringing. 

Fourth Nature has been made possible with the financial support of Lotteries Yukon.
