She has exhibited nationally and internationally with exhibitions and performances at galleries and museums including Skol, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Montreal), Gallery TPW, the AGYU, and the The Power Plant (Toronto), eyelevel (Halifax), TRUCK (Calgary), Saw Gallery (Ottawa), Artspeak (Vancouver), and a residency at Villa Arson, National Centre for Contemporary Art in Nice, France.
Each work has been created through subtle manipulations of appropriated imagery, both personal and foreign.
The moments chosen are linked by themes of everydayness, banality, routine actions, insignificant events, and nostalgia.
Bergeron was born in Sudbury where she has worked in photography for almost twenty years.
Her work has been presented on numerous occasions and has been published in many books and cultural magazines. Our season sponsors are CBON, la Première Chaîne, Espace musique and Radio-Canada Television.
Bergeron functions within a studio setting using a consistent colourless environment devoid of props, costume or extraneous detail.
Is this more or less artful than the careful positioning and lighting of the Bechers when they shot their houses, winding towers and blast furnaces?
The overriding question is always "what is a photograph? " I'm working on my own search for an answer and one way is to ask myself if it is possible to take the photographer out of the equation.
Just how far can we remove the "artist" as the automation of the camera continues to increase?
Her subjects are tightly framed as they engage the lens often presenting only head and shoulders or even simply, an arm or hand.
She can transform the subtle into grand and the monochromatic into something vivid.
