Coming through the Fog: les rencontres de Matthieu Brouillard et de Donigan Cumming explores common currents running through the works of Matthieu Brouillard and Donigan Cumming, and the manners in which similar impulses have been worked out on formal, emotional, and conceptual levels through the medium of photography. Through proximity, the ways by which each artist’s work can be read are irrevocably changed and multiplied, imbued with new clarity. While highlighting a community of interest as well as an affinity of sensibility between two artists of different generations, the publication also offers an occasion to present unusual and sometimes radical responses to debates that have shaped contemporary photography. As Brouillard and Cumming have written:

By bringing our work together, we wished to put these points of connection, with their differently charged electric potentials, into play to generate energies of high intensity as well as short-circuits—moments both of closeness and of resounding rupture. This project may function like a kind of curious “machine” that at once produces and dissipates; infuses and diffuses; conditions and deconditions. A machine that is all the more efficient for the fact that it does not pursue homogeneity and conformity, transparency and illumination. A machine, rather, that produces excesses, improbable associations, and multivocal bodies that throw thought into confusion as much as they stimulate and animate it.

Returning to the photographic work that Cumming began in the early 1980s, and placing it in tandem with Brouillard’s photographic projects since 2003, this publication presents over thirty years of artistic production, along with critical essays by Eduardo Ralickas and Erin Silver.
