Kotama Bouabane
perched on a limb of a sandalwood tree, 2018
Digital print on silk georgette and motorized fan

01.05.18 – 12.06.18

Perched on a limb of a sandalwood tree references the Febreze brand of air freshener and the language used to describe their "Big Sur" scent. The abstract images printed onto the delicate material documents the mist sprayed from the bottle photographed in the studio.

This site-specific, kinetic, photographic work examines the construction/representation of place and the natural environment through artificial and romanticized ideals.

Kotama Bouabane has an MFA in Studio Arts, Photography from Concordia University, Montreal and an AOCAD from OCAD. His work has been exhibited in many galleries including Centre A (Vancouver), VU Photo (Quebec City) & Gallery 44 Centre For Contemporary Photography (Toronto). He has received many awards and grants from the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council & the Canada Council for the Arts. He currently holds positions in the Photography Department at OCADU and York University.
