Celia Perrin Sidarous: The Archivist
Focusing on the theme The Life of Things, proposed by curator María Wills Londoño, MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image presents The Archivist, by Celia Perrin Sidarous in collaboration with the McCord Museum.
The exhibition explores the historiographic charge of objects in creating photographic stagings. The Archivist shows items from the McCord Museum’s collection next to photographs and objects made or acquired by Perrin Sidarous over the years. Two collections— one institutional and the other personal—enter into dialogue in the gallery.
Celia Perrin Sidarous
Celia Perrin Sidarous creates photographic scenes and settings that interrogate the functions and uses specific to the items they contain—images, objects, structures, and architectural components—by creating new links between them. Drawing in equal measure from the Western discipline of history and the rules of still life, interior decorating, and exhibition design, Perrin Sidarous’s work deconstructs the conditions under which we normally approach objects.
