AURÉLIE PÉTREL

Aurélie Pétrel offers a kind of pulling of photography’s leg by providing it with the very dimension it is missing, the third one. This use of the production and display modes of photography leads to installation. The artist, writing about the work on display, states, “The indicative signs of measurement are set in brass plates, structurally linked in the show, i.e., the reporter, the hourglass, a couple photographed from behind. These three small-scale images possess a certain preciousness; they are the genesis, the reference to the unity of time/fact, space, and presence/the gaze. The gold effect of the brass could elevate these images to the ranks of icons, or photos imbued with the past. The texture is posited as the starting point for a conceptual reflection.” (Excerpt from the conversation between Sandra Doublet and Aurélie Pétrel, based on the display and the text by Alex Brown for the Track 3 show, which ran from 07-12-2018 to 09-02-2019 at Gallery 44 (G44), Centre for Contemporary Photography in Toronto) *1980, lives and works in Rome, Paris and Geneva
