Description

Faux-Pas is a photographic documentation prompted by the artist’s curiosity while living in the US. This study investigates the use of the American flag and the Code relating to the flag. As a Canadian living an extended ‘séjour’ in Ohio and in Utah, the pattern and colours of the American flag became visually intoxicating.

Louise Levergneux is a photographer and book artist, creating limited-edition artists’ books and participating in national and international book arts exhibitions. Louise’s work incorporates digital photography as a medium that expresses her interest in the concepts of memory and identity. Her work focuses upon collecting, storing, and disseminating biographical information. Levergneux combines her visual journeys into narratives that integrate personal events and connects people, places, and topics in unexpected ways to create a story that can be read as temporal fragments, or in their entirety. An overriding purpose of her artists’ books is to capture and disseminate the mundane in a unique, creative, and dynamic way for the reader to experience.
