THE LONG MOMENT

5 P.M. TO 8 P.M.
PATRICK MIKHAIL GALLERY in Montreal is pleased to present THE LONG MOMENT, an official satellite exhibition of Momenta | Biennale de l'image. The exhibition features new work by four well-known Montreal artists working in photography: VELIBOR BOŽOVIĆ, JINYOUNG KIM, THOMAS KNEUBÜHLER, and DAVID K. ROSS.
THE LONG MOMENT acts a counterpoint to the idea of the decisive moment. An invitation to consider duration as a key component of the photographic act. In the exhibition, the four artists present projects in which the moment is extended—through investigations into generational time (Velibor Božović), urban time (Jinyoung Kim), geological time (Thomas Kneubühler), and archival time (David K. Ross).
VELIBOR BOŽOVIĆ provides a personal examination of history through the transformation of his hometown Sarajevo, all from the same vantage point—a window in his apartment—with images spanning a 25-year period.
JINYOUNG KIM looks at mass resettlements in the outskirts of Seoul, South Korea where the strewn belongings of displaced persons provide evidence of abandoned histories.
THOMAS KNEUBÜHLER’s landscape images from Canada’s far North, as well as his images from Mount Royal, a vastly eroded ancient volcano, are interrupted and transformed by contemporary infrastructure.
DAVID K. ROSS brings us to the rooftops of various art institutions, capturing vapour that is expelled from heating and cooling systems in which trace elements of art works are “breathed” out.
The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with texts by REBECCA DUCLOS and RAYMONDE APRIL.
