Serge Clément

Écrans et réseaux
May 8, 2021 to June 19, 2021

Galerie Simon Blais is pleased to present, from May 8 to June 19, 2021, the exhibition Serge Clément — Écrans et réseaux. This exhibition brings together 17 recent works by the Montreal photographer in room 2 of the gallery.

Like many photographers of his generation who made their reputation with silver (black and white) prints, Serge Clément has, for the past fifteen years, integrated digital technologies into his practice. During a creative residency at the Cinémathèque québécoise (2016-2017), the artist viewed numerous films from the institution's vast collection. During this time, Clément captured images from the screen, thereby creating digital files from various filmic sources or media. In particular, he was looking for those furtive moments when digital technology slips and fragments the image into thousands of pixels; these digital slips are commonly referred to as "glitches. This is how the artist created the Écran series shown in this exhibition. These works are accompanied by other recent photographs by the artist that also play with the notion of image pixelation, photographic abstraction and the ambiguity between the real and the virtual, the real and the false.
