photographic sensitive cartographies of architectural spaces
presented as solo exhibition at the Maison de l'architecture du Québec, Montreal (Canada), 2014
9 transparent prints on 1/4 x 86 x 12 inches tempered glass
NEUF is committed to describing the experience of space and its unconscious perception, to making visible the cohabitation between spaces, bodies and objects. Photography explores a way in which light operates as a topographic tool, an instrument reproducing the sensitive.
An encounter between the experience of space and its representation, NEUF is the meeting of a perceptual vision with nine architectures, environments, spatial qualities and sensory visions of nine architects.
With the support of the Canada Council for the Arts
and the RAIC (Royal Architecture Institute of Canada) Foundation.
