Lisa Fitzgibbons

Les prunelles de la peau


Lisa Fitzgibbons is predominantly a maker of experimental films. La Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario was the site of her first installation which combined her talents of film and photography. This exhibition, which consists of a series of photographic images as well as the projection of film images on windows, explores the way in which pain etches itself into memory.

Her views: “At the cross roads between visual arts and cinema lies a fertile ground for research. The more formal aspects of the first discipline give way to a certain alternative exploration of narration that is usually reserved for cinema. I want to go beyond these restrictions in order to re-examine the way stories are told. A closer examination of an isolated image charged with emotion challenges the traditional structure of stories told through films.”
