Harbour 2005 is a series of colour photographs depicting mixed-use sites along the Halifax waterfront. Printed from large-format negatives, Conarroe’s consistently high vantage point, distorted colour and luminous skies transform these nondescript scenes, which could never appear in precisely this fashion to the naked eye. By shooting with prolonged exposure times at dusk and dawn, Conarroe builds in the theme of duration, in place of the expected instantaneous capture, and exchanges documentary priorities for conceptual ones. Scott Conarroe earned an MFA from NSCAD University in 2005. Harbour is the latest instalment in the Prospect series, a program that provides exhibition opportunities for emerging artists.
Opening reception on Thursday, 15 September, at 7:30 pm. Free bus departs from 5163 Duke Street at 7:00, returning downtown at 9pm.
