Edward Burtynsky Mounds and Voids: From Human to Global Scale
On the 80th anniversary of the Raid of 19th August 1942 and to commemorate and reaffirm the historical and present artistic links uniting the town with Canada, Dieppe is pleased to join with the Embassy of Canada and the Canadian Cultural Centre to welcome to the Dieppe Museum the exhibition, Edward Burtynsky Mounds and Voids: From Human to Global Scale.
Originally organized and presented by the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris, the exhibition offers an original voyage through Burtynsky’s work. Mounds and Voids aims his lens at the disparity of industrial means used to exploit resources across the globe, its solids and hollows. From manual digging to industrial extraction, lots of questions arise. What changes for the planet? What impact on the populations and workers involved in the cycle from raw materials to waste? What future for the relationship between the human species and its environment? Mounds and Voids: From Human to Global Scale plays the scales across fourteen photographs, two monumental images and a collection of works of augmented reality.
