Vernissage: June 1st, 5pm to 7pm

In PHOSPHOS, Montréal-based lighting designer, visual artist, and educator Paul Chambers looks to reimagine the use of lighting in live stage arts. Challenging the codes of theatrical practice, Chambers creates lighting installations that question how we perceive light when we are immersed in it. PHOSPHOS makes space for lighting that is tangible and communicative. Chambers accomplishes this through creating a haptic experience that places the viewer inside a dimly lit space where their vision is heightened, giving them access to very subtle changes, making them more vulnerable and receptive. A space in which our eyes question the legitimacy of what we are seeing. This visual arts installation / immersive space will be activated by artists of different disciplines, in collaboration with the MAI.
