About the Exhibit
The images of Paz’ installation, La Vue de deux Horizons, was first shown in the gallery of Centre lntermondes, La Rochelle, France during her residency program. Paz’ initial aim was to explore, through research and photography, the 17th century French military fortifications of Vauban, an architectural site that represents an extreme compression of time and detail, Paz developed a travelogue around her research, to explore how the modifications and changes to things over time are manifested and how it has functioned as an aid to collective memory.
For this exhibition, a selection of the images from La Vue de deux Horizons will be hung alongside the artist’s recent work. Paz utilizes digital techniques and printing technology to create one-of-a-kind images that are burned on the surface of Arches watercolor paper. The geographies and histories that Paz was researching in La Rochelle is not only a reflection of her residency, but an exploration of how an image is a complex relationship between artist and subject, nature and technology, and the personal and social.
This exhibition was made in partnership with Centre Intermondes and 1335MABINI.
