re:site montréal consists of two interrelated parts: a group exhibition 
works by German artists chosen by Felix S. Huber and Florian Wüst, and a
media arts project produced by Huber and Wüst during their residency at
OBORO. A component of the media arts project will be installed in Carré

re:site montréal appropriates the idea of everyday life as a film
narrative. To a large extent determined by cinema, media and political
spectacle, we perceive and understand the world through the eyes of
cultural memory and collective imaginaries. Generally, the impact of 
image technologies on social life represents two sides of the same 
coin; on
the one hand there is the threat of total control, and on the other hand
the potential of performance and the creation of visibility are 

Combining photography, video, digital live projection, newspaper 
and network installation, the exhibition explores the existing 
collusion of
subjective perception and the permanent flux of information, of public 
private spheres, reality and fiction.  Other works in the show 
reflect on the behavioral patterns and architectural devices of power 
increasingly guide our navigation and interaction in public space.

The media arts project situated in Carré St. Louis -- a public park near
OBORO, broadcasts two live video streams through the internet. These 
and sounds are automatically mixed with prefabricated recordings and
enacted scenes, both stored in a database, that match with and expand 
the actual scene at the site. The constantly changing audio-visual 
is played back in real time on monitors and speakers integrated into the
structure in Carré Saint-Louis as well as through the internet at
www.oboro.tv/resitemontreal that can be accessed from a computer 
set up in OBORO's gallery. The ambiguous transparency of the project's
concept creates a stage with the gaze of cameras, which subverts the 
of closed circuit surveillance found in any large city in the world. At 
same time, it presents a public platform for text exchanges.

Cette exposition bénéficie du soutien financier de La Bavière au 
Québec, du
Conseil munipale de Berlin, de l'Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen e.V.
(ifa) et de ProHelvetia, Conseil des arts de la Suisse.
