Sara Angelucci creates work in photography, video, audio and installation. Her research in the history of photography draws attention to the ways photographs are constructed to tell particular stories, create histories and memorialization. Her audio works present the human voice through song, mimicked sounds and spoken word. Arboretum features found 19th century cabinet cards whose painted forest backdrops have been transformed to allow trees to take over the figures. The cabinet card, now consumed by the forest, was a popular form of portrait photography. Angelucci’s audio work Venetian Forest conjures an imaginary gathering of birds in an imaginary place, a morning chorus of bird sounds made using toy bird whistles collected from around the world.
Sara Angelucci has exhibited her photography across Canada at the Art Gallery of York University, Le Mois de la Photo, TPW, MacLaren Art Centre, Art Gallery of Hamilton, and St. Mary’s University Art Gallery, as well as in the US, Europe, and China. Her videos have been screened in Canada, Europe, China, Australia and the U.S. Sara has participated in artist residencies at the AGO, NSCAD, the Banff Centre and Biz-Art, Shanghai. She is Adjunct Professor in Photography at Ryerson University in Toronto.
