Truth and Beauty Gallery presents 1981 The North Pole Dig

Friday, April 5th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery shares  H E N R I   R O B I D E A U 1981 The North Pole Dig on view from April 6th to April 19. 

“The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey was originally conceived of as a photographic book project, a study of the major manifestations of human activity in the second largest country in the world, the land of my ancestors, Canada.

The 1981 North Pole Dig was the maiden voyage of The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey.

Leaving Vancouver August 1, the dig party arrived at its destination ten days later, Inuvik NWT, the land of the midnight noon, after having traversed the equivalent of a trip to Chihuahua, Mexico. Another two weeks later the dig arrived back in Vancouver with only five of the original eight members having survived the entire trip. Much of what was learned on that first outing would serve the Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey well for most of the next decade of cross country digs.” 

” In 2016, at the age of 70, and after 50 years in photography I began working on the Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey again with the intent of editing down the 2,000 or so panoramas into the book I had envisioned back in 1980.

That’s what is in this show – the first six pages of contact sheets from the first dig, along with the preliminary edit pages where I have selected, grouped and narrated the images on a worksheet. From these worksheets will come the final stories and book pages of The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey.”  – H. Robideau

Animals are Good to Think With at Guns & Rain Gallery

Monday, April 1st, 2019

It’s hard to believe that almost exactly a year ago, Guns & Rain opened their new space in Parkhurst, Johannesburg. They are please to present their quirky and provocative new group show, “Animals are Good to Think With”,  featuring Ann Gollifer (Botswana), Vernon Reed (South Africa), Tawanda Takura (Zimbabwe) and Rosemarie Marriott (South Africa).

In 1962, French structural anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss, in his work on totemism, coined the famous – now even clichéd – phrase that “animals are good to think with”. He argued that animals were not simply good to eat; nor were they simply objects of identification or symbolism, but rather part of a structure of human thinking that was common across all societies.

The exhibition is ongoing through April 12th.

Truth and Beauty present Spellbound by photographer Ken Lorenz

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery is pleased to present Spellbound. The show opens on February 23rd and runs to March 9th. The artist Ken Lorenz will be in attendance for the opening from 1 – 4pm.

 

EXHIBITION STATEMENT
“Inspiration for my image-making comes primarily from Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
a Latin American author who developed the novel literary genre, Magic Realism, as a basis for storytelling.
‘Magic Realism’ is defined as “making use of magic elements in order to create an alternative  to accepted reality.
Time exists in a kind of timeless fluidity.”
While each series is different, this is the overarching concept weaving them together.
The images in this exhibition have no distinct psychological relationship;  yet the distortion –
obscurity and ambiguity evident in each photograph —  establishes the artistic intention. ”

Images from three portfolios are featured in this exhibition:
In The Shadow of Puppets
Words in Search of a Photograph
