Putting forward the mediation strategies of its cultural policy, the Haut-St-Laurent MRC will present the exhibition “Sight-finding” of Les Capteurs d’images, a small group of students from the Arthur-Pigeon secondary school. The exhibition will take place from May 21 to June 11, 2017 at the Alfred-Langevin cultural Hall.
As part of the photography program of the Frontaliers Actifs*, fifteen students will show us hidden treasures of the everyday life. These objects, landscapes and even people who surround us without us paying attention will be emphasized in this exhibition which aims to be experimental and playful.
With supervision and instruction from Penny Paris, their teacher, the students learned to observe what is around them to really see rather than just look. “Some of the students are just starting photography so, they began by learning the basics like how to prepare a camera, how to make the focus and to play with the various shots. For the most experimented ones, they rediscovered the everyday life objects and learned how to present them under a new angle” says Mrs. Paris.
It is important to offer youth the possibility not only to view exhibitions, but also to participate in them. Understanding all the stages in the process of creation, production and presentation will allow them not only to widen their knowledge but also their horizons. It is from this perspective that the coordinator of the Alfred-Langevin cultural Hall invites the population, particularly the artists of the region, to encourage these young creators and share their knowledge as well as their experience during the “vernissage”.
Do you really pay attention on what is surrounding you? See for yourself, from May 21 to June 11, 2017 at the Alfred-Langevin cultural Hall.
