[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Jean-François Cantin — Love Supreme, fragments

Artist Statement

This video installation and multimedia performance questions the present modes of perceiving reality. A perceptuel context where technology and the concept of nature exist in a perpetual state of displacement, dislocation and interaction. The work creates a sympthesis between technological and natural phenomena: videographic, and multim?dia devices interact with optical devices and metaphor of our present ways of apprehending the world.

  • Jean-François Cantin. As one of the first Canadian artists to work continuously in the field of video installations, his works question the concept of the image and the act of representation per se. Video: J.F. Cantin CV
