Jayce Salloum

Location/dis-location(s): beyond the pale

In the framework of the Biennale de l’image under the theme What Does The Image Stand For?, the McCord Museum presents the installation Location/dis-location(s): beyond the pale, in collaboration with guest curator Ami Barak.

In the form of a thematically structured nebula, this installation consists of photographs extracted from archives that Jayce Salloum has been building since 1979 during his travels around the world. By mixing personal and public archives, he takes on questions related to disputed borders, nationalism, social integration, and crises of identity.

He positions himself as an anthropologist of the present who analyzes our environment, near or far, and its representations, revealing the many facets of so-called reality. This project also functions like a personal attempt to rationalize the outside world.

Not to be missed!
