The Crawfish Circuit http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220418344?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220418344?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Friday, Jul 31 - Friday, Aug 28 Location: Visual Arts Building, Main Gallery.

ARTIST: Giraud Polite
RECEPTION:  Friday, July 31st, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

The Crawfish Circuit addresses the process and implications of documenting a musical soundscape from an insider’s perspective. Giraud Polite's research interrogates the photographer’s privilege within a cultural, historical, and artistic framework. His study of southwest Louisiana’s culture examines the relationship between music and social welfare, and explores the messages between the photographic image, sound, and memory.

 

"The nutritional value of the Crawfish Circuit exhibit inspires conversation through its photographic micro - narratives, all the while energizing the installation space with jubilant and haunting sounds of the southwest Louisiana soundscape."  

-Giraud Polite‚Äč

Artist Statement:

Working in the areas of digital photography and multimedia arts, my projects explore themes such as cultural ritual and memory. Photographically my current work explores the photograph as a sacred and reproducible object. Presented as relic or artifact and departing from the conventional photograph on paper, I choose to use industrial materials, such as aluminum, wood, and plexiglas in an attempt to create permanence within the story of the image, in a sense to fix the image by adding weight and mass, to affirm the existence of the photograph as a sculptural object.
