Friday, July 14, 2017 - 2:30 pm

Jennifer Orpana from ROM will be giving a presentation at Chartwell Robert Speck Retirement about "The Family Camera" exhibition.

"The Family Camera" is presented by the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Mississauga, and is being held at both institutions with the support of The Family Camera Network. It is curated by a curatorial team led by Deepali Dewan, Senior Curator at the Royal Ontario Museum, and includes Thy Phu, Julie Crooks, Sarah Bassnett, Jennifer Orpana, Sarah Parsons, and Silvia Forni.

This exhibition explores how family photos shape our sense of self, family, community, and nation. Exclusively at AGM, "Missing Chapters" considers family photos that are lost, destroyed, abandoned or never taken, featuring an installation entitled Crossing the Farther Shore by acclaimed artist Dinh Q. Lê.

"Internationally acclaimed artist Dinh Q. Lê was born in Vietnam and immigrated to the US at the age of ten to escape the Khmer Rouge. Lê is best known for his large-scale photographic weavings and video works that question the way in which world events are perceived. Inspired by traditional Vietnamese grass mat weaving, Lê weaves images chosen from a variety of motifs including the Vietnam War and Cambodian ruins. A deeply-thoughtful artist, Lê's research focuses on people's personal memories of historical events, notably on the complex legacy of the Vietnam War and its ongoing impact on contemporary Vietnam.

Crossing the Farther Shore is made of found photographs that were taken in Vietnam between the 1940s and 1980s. They were abandoned or lost during a time of political unrest when many families fled the country for fear of persecution. In the 1990s, the artist returned to Vietnam and collected orphaned family photographs from local shops. He used traditional weaving techniques to arrange the photos into a sculptural installation that highlights the traces of familial intimacy in the form of hand-written notes on the reverse of the photographs. The found photos remind Lê of his childhood and this installation captures his desire to find the photos his own family left behind. He describes the photos as a kind of 'surrogate family photo album or collection.'" ~ Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival scotiabankcontactphoto.com
