Natalie Hunter: Pieces of Light—An Appendix

June 16–July 29, 2017
Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 21, 2017, 7–9pm
Location: Open Sesame, 220 King Street West, Kitchener, ON

Natalie Hunter considers the close relationship between place and memory in Pieces of Light—An Appendix, which is based on her eight-month exploration of Bridgeport, a historic village within Kitchener, ON. The photographs in this exhibition come from the same series as Hunter’s public artwork Pieces of Light, which will be unveiled Saturday, June 10, 2017, at 10:30am at the Bridgeport Community Centre (20 Tyson Drive, Kitchener).

Hunter’s unconventional process yields images that undermine our notions of photographs as captured moments in time. The artist uses 120mm film, multiple exposures, collage, a light box, and digital imaging to make ghostly traces of trees and other elements that recur where they are not expected. Colour filters bring the banks of the Grand River and nearby infrastructure into otherworldly focus. Hunter’s work prompts us to think about how picturesque landscapes are captured by the camera, and how they linger in our minds.
