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.
