Description

Incarnations showcases twenty years of Eyre's uniquely performative portraits deconstructing what it means to be a thinker, woman, and subject. Incarnations is the first collection to make accessible a representative body of work by one of Canada's most original, provocative, and internationally acclaimed photographers. Spanning the artist's seven major series dating from 1993 to 2013, Incarnations showcases and celebrates the theatricality and carnivalesque abandon that has become the hallmark of Eyre's portraits. With contributions from renowned Canadian poets, playwrights, and novelists including Christian Bök, Lynn Crosbie, and RM Vaughan, as well as the Chicago Tribune's Lori Waxman, Incarnations highlights the ways, as James D. Campbell writes, “[Eyre] stops us in our tracks at every juncture with the stark, hallucinatory clarity of her visual language.'

Editorial Review

“The dense hermeticism in Eyre's vision generates a fascinating journey for the viewer, rewarded with a glimpse into a very complex psyche. A magnificent body of work.' - Canadian Art

?I love Janieta Eyre's work - it taps into deep dualities within us, both disturbing and ecstatic.' - Patricia Rozema
