Genius loci—A few aesthetic discoveries
Over the last decade, Alexandre Cv has been documenting the morphology of changing sites around the world. Each study is a chance to put into perspective the relations between the land and its history, as well as nature and formations. By questioning Genius loci, spirit of a place, Alexandre hopes to highlight the main tensions of photographed sites. Through methodological attention to framing by overexposing light sources to isolate the subject or by producing reflections on water or glass, Alexandre questions the concept of landscape itself as well as its structure. This landscape, a polysemic concept and a socio-cultural construction, is an aspect that Alexandre believes is essential to understanding our relationship with land and, ultimately, our own self.
Alexandre Cv received a degree in art history and garden design at the Université de Montréal. In 2009, he began a career in photography as a self-taught artist. His work has been displayed at various locations in Quebec and Toronto and is part of many private collections. He was a curator for four group exhibitions in addition to his time spent organizing various landscape-related events. Fascinated by landscape and urban issues, Alexandre has given talks about the city and art. He also does photography contracts pertaining to nature in the city in addition to cultural subjects. In contrast with his artistic practice, he has been working for ten years in community development and urban revitalization. He lives in Montréal and works in different areas around the world.
