Dianne Bos uses a line from British poet and soldier Isaac Rosenberg’s famous WWI poem Break of Day in the Trenches for the title of this exhibition. The Sleeping Green: no man’s land 100 years later consists of extraordinary photographs taken in ‘no-man’s land’ between the trenches on the Western Front.
Beginning in 2014 with the centenary of the start of the Great war, and subsequently in 2015 and 2016, Bos travelled through the battle sites in France and Belgium where Canadian soldiers fought. She used a variety of vintage and pinhole cameras, including a 100 year-old camera, to photograph the land a century after the Great war.
On returning home to Canada, Bos further worked with the images in the darkroom by incorporating objects from the battle sites – such as rocks, leaves, and a bullet – during the analog printing process. By scattering these over the paper during printing, as well as dodging, burning, and overlaying maps of stars, she produces layers of imagery that convey the emotional depth of these extraordinary landscapes.
This exhibition has been produced by the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery in partnership with the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris. With the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the University of Lethbridge Office of Research Services.
