This exhibition is a new photo-installation of images made between 1997 and 2007. The photographs are various sizes, installed in a panoramic array of clusters, content spilling off of each other to determine cross-referenced readings and inherent and exoteric context.

Drawn from an ongoing body of work titled “untitled: photographs”, these photographs attempt to engage critically in the representation of public and private space, the tableaux of commercial enterprises acting as ideological stage fronts, domestic settings, and the spaces of intimacy found inbetween both.

location/dis-location(s) approaches coming to oblique and evolving terms of what it means to be making photographs and the exploration of the possibilities of visualizing the nature of natural, urban, semi-urban, and sub-urban environment (and the totality of the constructs signified in those terms). It is from an analytical position arrived at through a subjective response to place; the city(ies), the specific locations, and a certain dislocation from these sites, places in flux, progressing, permutating, persisting, resisting or collapsing under pressures of regulated & unregulated development, crisis and contestation.

Now based in Vancouver, Jayce Salloum has exhibited pervasively at the widest range of local and international venues possible, from the smallest unnamed storefronts & community centres in his neighbourhood to institutions such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The National Gallery of Canada; and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. In 2006 his work was featured in the 15th Biennale Of Sydney, and in a solo installation at the Museum Villa Stuck, Munich. He is presently preparing a monograph and solo touring exhibition with the Kamloops Art Gallery for launch in 2009.

His work is in the collections of The Art Gallery of Windsor, The Canada Council Artbank, Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, The Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The National Gallery of Canada, The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Greece, The Polaroid Europa International Collection, Netherlands, The Banff Centre for the Arts, The Vancouver Art Gallery and many others.
