James Nizam: Mnemonic Landscape
Works in the exhibition
We are delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Vancouver-based artist James Nizam in our West Gallery as part of CONTACT Photography Festival.
Nizam’s Mnemonic Landscape focuses on the state between presence and absence, illumination and erasure, tackling the material of “the trace” as it moves into and out of dissolution. New ways to affix the photographic medium to alternative representations emerge, wherein a fragment, artefact, photograph, or sculpture become one and the same. Within this framework, Mnemonic Landscape unveils the photographic possibilities for the still image to activate space.
