Photographer Nick Kline has announced the opening of his latest exhibition, Stony Bottom Rocky Point in Montreal. In the press release, it is revealed that the project’s title “is an English translation of the Indian word Causapscal, which is the name of a village in Quebec. Though known for its world-class salmon fishing, Causapscal has another distinction: historically high rates of self-inflicted death.”
Kline uses photography to explore balance and rhythm as a way to relate to the emotional struggles surrounding this sensitive topic in an abstract way. He creates casted molds of the surfaces at culturally-loaded sites with a tragic past made historic by the media. The resulting tactile record of the site is later photographed in a studio.
The exhibition will open Thursday, May 15th at 6:00pm and will be on display through June 21st at Occurrence gallery in Montreal. In conjunction with this exhibition, a roundtable discussion with artists Nick Kline, Brian Mishara, and Jean-Fraçois Bérubé will take place on Thursday May 22nd from 5:00-7:00pm and will focus on themes and issues surrounding the exhibition.
Be sure to join these exciting events and come out to show your support for Kline’s beautiful and intriguing work.
