At Art in House we are always exploring experiences and memory surrounding photography. It seems appropriate to have an artist create an experience delving into this theme. Why are we so enamoured with the moment caught instantly, with the ephemeral and with the re-creation of our moments. Why has the artist had the impulse throughout history to create handmade memories and stories? David shields, oh so eloquently sums this up,
“Why do you take photographs so constantly, so obsessively? Why do you collect others photographs? Why do you scavenge in secondhand shops and buy old albums of other people’s pasts?
"So that I’ll see what I've seen”
Please join us July 16th 7-9pm for, some times….handmade photographs by Blair Poulin. Scavenge through her experiences and memory and you might just see your moments.
A note from Blair
Photography has always been a part of my life. I have a love and impulse to use all kinds of cameras; from analog cameras to the camera on my phone. The nostalgia of the photo had me looking for ways to express this feeling but in drawing. Using today’s access to the digital print with the feeling of history, I capture then create drawings that are simple and intimate moments to savour. These become my handmade photographs.
