Alexandre Larose (CA)
A trajectory that extends from my family’s backyard into a lake, repeatedly performed and superimposed, in-camera, onto a single thousand-foot reel of 35mm motion picture film.
Alexandre Larose (CA), born in 1978, is an artist whose practice investigates phenomena of appearance and representation as translated by the media of optics and celluloid. His approach relies on a methodical stripping out of layers embedded in both the live subjects and the technique that translates them into visual artifacts. Larose’s work has gathered critical attention through festival selections and curated programmes. More recently his practice has expanded in the installation field, solo-exhibiting at the Cinémathèque québécoise in Montréal and La Bande Vidéo in Québec City. Other recent venues include ArtSpace Sydney, the Young Gallery in Wellington and the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany.
