about this item

This first monograph dedicated to the photographic practice of the Montreal-based artist documents his first solo exhibition in a museum. With boundless devotion, Yan Giguere arranges his photographs of innumerable sizes and shapes into astonishing assemblages from which unsuspected formal, narrative and poetic associations emerge. Working much like a film editor, he creates coherent artistic works that go well beyond the individual shot and the anecdotal scene to suggest endless perspectives of multiple realities. The more than 600 images featured are in reality 5 distinct works created from 2007 to present day: Choisir (2003-2007), Attractions (2007-2009), Visites libres (2009-2013), and La foret du chevreuil à lunettes and Les herbes (2015). For Giguere the medium is intregal to the message and he uses dozens of types of cameras, with a particular interest in popular models made between 1920 and 2005. The wide range of devices produces works that are often unpredictable and, when presented together, impossible to date. Yet, despite Giguere's fascination with the capture and production of the analog image, his mastery of the digital is subtly apparent throughout. This publication, with its oversized format and dozens of reproductions, echoes the spirit of abundance that characterizes the artist’s work. In English and French
