Slip/Friction

Barrie Jones, Manuel Pina


Slip/Fiction features Vancouver photobased artists Barrie Jones and Manuel Pina. Both approach the photograph in a similar way, but render images that are provocatively dissimilar. Jones’ work incorporates the figure in Vancouver’s landscape with tableaux that capture those outside of history staffing an idealized landscape. Pina’s photographs are silent, eerie and cool, the pedestals and spaces of lost and forgotten heroes, marking the aching history of Havana and Cuba.
