Elisa Julia Gilmour, Death Is Something: Film Stills # 10, 2013

As emerging artists interested in two fundamental elements of photographic representation, time and light, Elisa Julia Gilmour and Ben Freedman’s exhibition merges their two distinct interdisciplinary practices to uncover their procedural, thematic, and aesthetic commonalities. Each piece in the exhibition looks at the medium as a subject and an object through the dichotomous relationship between light and darkness, singularity and plurality, motion and stillness, and life and death.

Date: May 15–June 29
Location: Art Gallery of Mississauga, 300 City Centre Dr., Mississauga ON
