Celia Perrin Sidarous: The Archivist

Celia Perrin Sidarous

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 ghostly and 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.
