Outre-vie / Afterlife

Research-creation on the correlation of images within photographic and filmic space-time.

This project is based in visual arts practice, specifically in photography and video.¬†The ‚Äúafterlife‚ÄĚ of photographic and film images is examined within a context of renewed narratives and representations. The metaphorical aspect of¬†‚Äúafterlife‚Ä̬†is approached in two ways: images that capture and extend the presence of disappearing subjects, people, places ; images that can be used as¬†primary material,¬†conductor threads¬†within new configurations, creating active bodies of work in video and film installations.

Directed by Raymonde April, who is currently holding a Recherche Création grant from Fonds Québecois de la Recherche sur la Société et la Culture (FRQSC). Core members of the Outre-Vie/Afterlife group include: student researcher members, (i.e., MFA Studio Arts, MA INDI, PhD HUMA), as well as affiliated collaborators, both faculty and prominent visiting artist-researchers from the local artistic community.—afterlife/
