Jayce Salloum: location/dis-location(s): reprise


12 September 2013 through 13 October 2013
Opening reception Thursday 12 September 2013, 6-9pm

Curated by Steven Tong

Part photo-array, sculptures of disused materials, and objects, this installation reprises and coalesces fragments of several projects made between Sept. 12, 1996 up to the opening, Sept. 12, 2013. The works are installed in a panorama of clusters, content spilling off of each other to determine cross-referenced readings and inherent and associated exoteric contexts. The photographs are from an ongoing body of work titled untitled: photographs, that attempts to engage critically in the representation of public and private space, the tableaux of commercial enterprises acting as ideological stage fronts, domestic settings, and the spaces of intimacy found in-between both.

location/dis-location(s) approaches coming to oblique and evolving terms of what it means to be making photographs here (and elsewhere) and the exploration of the possibilities of visualizing the nature of ‘natural’, urban, semi-urban, and sub-urban environment (and the totality of the constructs signified in those terms). It is from an analytical position arrived at through a subjective response to place; the city(ies), the specific locations, and a certain dislocation from these sites, places in flux, permutating, persisting, resisting or collapsing under pressures of consumption/consumerism, regulated & unregulated development, crisis and contestation.

On October 25thlocation/dis-location(s): contingent promises, a corresponding exhibition in this continuum follows at Grunt Gallery, and will run until Nov. 30, 2013.

Some Administrative Matters

1.  We are slowly rebuilding our email list.  If you do not regularly receive CSA invitations and would like to, please send an add request to info@csaspace.ca.

2.  We're still not accepting submissions, but this is 2012, and everyone has a website.  If you are a Vancouver-based artist and would like to update us on your practice, please send your web details to info@csaspace.ca, to be circulated amongst our curatorial team.  If you are a non-Vancouver based artist, we'll be glad to look at your details too, but please be aware that we are a 100% self-funded space and have no money to ship work across town, let alone to/from the US, Europe and/or Asia.

2a.  Please send only your website details.  The idea is to spend about 30 seconds updating us on your whereabouts and your current practice.  This is not a "submission call," and there is no need for CVs, huge JPEG attachments, 1000-word statements of critical intent, essays, & etc.

2b.  We will look with interest at everything sent to us, but cannot guarantee a reply.

Thanks!  We look forward to hearing from you.
