At The Gallery
Nathalie DaoustFebruary 3 - April 14, 2018
In the Ted Fogg Gallery, Korean Dreams by Montreal born photographer Nathalie Daoust offers a complex series of photographs that probe the unsettling vacuity of North Korea. Taken in North Korea over two trips in 2012, these images reveal a country that seems to exist outside of time, as a carefully choreographed mirage. Daoust deliberately obscures her photographs during the development stage; as the layers of film are peeled off, the images are stifled until the facts becomes ‘lost’ in the process and a sense of detachment from reality is revealed.
