As we mark the 5th anniversary of the Paris Agreement (#COP21) and climate change continues to mobilize governments and citizens around the world, the Canadian Cultural Centre invites you to a virtual tour of the exhibition “Edward Burtynsky – Mounds and Voids. From Human to Global Scale“, on December 9th at 8pm.

Presented by the artist and the curator, this 45-minutes encounter was filmed in duplex at the CCC in Paris and at Edward Burtynsky’s studio in Toronto.

A renowned Canadian photographer, travelling around the planet for decades and exploring the residual landscapes left behind by our modern existence, Edward Burtynsky has produced images of an uncanny beauty of our planet. His work highlights the local and global issues of water and oil, the exploitation of resources and the resulting impact on labour forces and populations

Mounds and Voids focuses on the industrial and human means convened in the profitable exploitation of land. Far away from the large urban centres, what impacts do these operations have on our planet? What do we see and what do we know of those who dig, extract, pile up and work with bare hands where industrial machinery cannot? 

Curator: Catherine Bédard

📲 The virtual guided tour will be available on our Facebook Page.
