Catherine Rondeau Residency
Work in Progress with TalkSeePhotography

Mon 28 May 2018

This special addition to TalkSeePhotography will see CCA studio-resident artist Catherine Rondeau dialogue with Melanie Letoré about the series she has been creating since arriving in Glasgow last March. Closely connected to the culture of storytelling, the narratives developed in the Montreal artist’s dreamlike images revolve around the shaping of identity. Her residency photo project investigates the archetypical meaning at the heart of the Scottish folktale “The Selkie Bride”. And more specifically the metaphor between the seal-skin and a woman’s powerful inner self, a natural creative state often lost under years and layers of socialisation. Please come for a sneak peek of Catherine’s work in progress and her studio-flat, a part of CCA normally invisible to the public.
