05janAll Day31What Lies Beyond and UramadoPhotography and AR exhibition presented by the Alliance Française


Event Details

What lies beyond?

An exhibition on all four floors of cSPACE!

Discover the exhibition by talented French photographer Alexandra Laurent Le Passage from January 5th to January 31st at cSPACE.

Native of Burgundy, Alexandra Laurent shares her passion for photography in subtle shots that evoke the passage of both time and space.

Modesty photographer

Her photographic approach is always based on a search for sobriety. Whether it is a monument or a landscape, Alexandra captures the space with modesty, the photographer remaining in the background, like a guest who casts a discreet gaze on the scene. Her lens naturally turns to simple objects or everyday places taken in an instant transcended by a play of light and shadow.

The search for silence

Alexandra’s photographs rarely highlight people, places revealing their beauty in a dehumanized context where silence takes over the scene. She is fascinated by deserted places that offer to the viewer a feeling of tranquillity through lines and curves receding towards the horizon. It is only in this context that we discover how sublime and mystical each scene is.

The fascination of the passage

A recurring theme in her work is the passage. Through a path, a corridor, a staircase or a window, Alexandra makes us think about the promise of the unknown. Each photograph is an invitation to consider what lies beyond this passage. The passage is also understood as the passing of time and its effects on the scene.

Photographs of the exhibition are for sale and buyers can get them after the exhibition for $90 – $130 per item (depending on the size). Please contact the office of Alliance Française of Calgary for more information.
