Residuals of Gravity

Janet Bellotto

November 2, 2013 – January 4, 2014

Canadian artist Janet Bellotto’s multi-disciplinary exhibition – which spans photographs, video, prints and installation – features new works and one previous installation.

Bellotto collects images online, and from her own personal history and travels, and weaves them with other materials to form narratives. The artist does this to explore how the images may trigger memory, and oscillate between the imaginary and shattering realities of everyday day. In the series ‘Infusions and Impossible Things’ (above), domestic interiors are depicted to be on the verge of being engulfed by fire or water. The new works were inspired by the relic imagery found at the Sanctuary of Castelmonte, located in the Carnia mountains in Italy. Painted relics on tins archive accounts of near-death experiences (below).
