May 17, 2012

Canadian Prairie born artist Christine Kirouac has had her media installations, performances and videos exhibited in both galleries and film festivals throughout Canada, Paris, Lisbon, London, Ireland and most recently Cairo. Beginning 6:00pm on Sunday, May 20, at the Delta Arts Center in Winston-Salem, Christine’s beautiful new research-and photo-based project Papermen comes to the Triad.

Papermen is a series of 20 large-format black and white images of the “hawkers” who sell the local Winston-Salem Journal in the city streets. The exhibit raises compelling questions about what constitutes portraiture, community, and the value of the art object itself. For months, Christine has engaged these men one on one, captured them digitally in a series of stunning photographs. She then used a multi-layered printing process that merges the portrait subject and the object they sell: newspapers.

Christine dropped by WFDD to talk about her art with TAUC host David Ford.
