Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery presents Jean Rene LeBlanc’s “Greekopolis”
Coker College’s Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery will present Jean Rene LeBlanc’s “Greekopolis,” through Friday, April 6.
LeBlanc received his B.A. in studio arts in 1993 from Concordia University, his M.F.A. in multimedia and photography in 1996 from the University of Windsor Ontario, and received his PhD in study and practice of art in 2006 from the Université du Québex à Montréal.
“Since 2012, I have been using digital infrared photography to investigate spaces and places with strong historical and cultural significance,” says LeBlanc. “Greekopolis is a new body of work that uses this format to develop new ways of looking at the world we live in. Shot in Greece between June 15 and July 15, 2015, the project proposes a series of diptychs juxtaposing images of ancient and modern ruins to generate a dialogue between—and about —contemporary and historical landscapes and economic practices.”
