Lip Sync
Philippe Raphanel
June 18 — July 13, 1991

The Or Gallery is proud to present Philippe Raphanel’s new exhibition, Lip Synch. Raphanel has been recognized for his large abstract landscape painting. This new work is a critical reflection on his earlier work. Rather than idealize and mythologize landscape in painting, this installation engages in a study of modernist constructions of nature as spaces of specular pleasure. Raphanel takes full opportunity of the experimental nature of an artist-run centre to produce a work that challenges many of the foundations upon which his earlier art practice was built and produced a mixed media installation that would not have been possible in more commercial venues.
