Continuing a project developed during a MAWA residency, Chaigne uses overhead projectors to present the process of making images appear and disappear by developing silver prints on glass slides. Using images from her personal archive, anonymous images and film stills, she creates a dreamlike narrative that imagines a bridge between the photospirits of Winnipeg and the story of Naïa, the last witch of Brittany.

This event is part of the The Undead Archive

This fall, MAWA is partnering with arts and academic organizations in Winnipeg to produce a deep dive into the intersections of visual arts and the supernatural, inspired by Winnipeg’s history of spiritualist photography. Activities include a photography workshop with former MAWA Artist in Residence Estelle Chaigne (France), a “MAWA Presents” online lecture with Dr. Grace Williams (UK), and the Wendy Wersch Memorial Lecture with long-time MAWA friend Erika DeFreitas. ASL is available for all events upon request.
