VIDEOTANK #1: Sébastien Pesot
September 6 - December 2011

Artist: Sébastien Pesot (Ayer's Cliff, Québec)

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 15, 2011 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

The exhibition is produced by the Foreman Art Gallery with a financial contribution from the Canada Council for the Arts.

Feu Forêt (a word play, in French, between « forest fire » and « will-o’- wisp ») is a projection on which the viewer is invited to witness the burning of a perfectly symmetrical tree: a Christmas tree, to be precise. This absurd and somewhat sad spectacle serves as an archetypal representation of duration: that lighting a flame leads inevitably to its extinction.

Sébastien Pesot has produced several experimental videos which have been screened in twenty different countries. Since then he has mainly been producing audio-video installations, while continuing to work on performance art and computer graphics.
