Crossing the Equator, Going South, Pacific Rim. #03

Evergon currently lives with his mother in Montreal. He continues his 37-year teaching career at Concordia University. His 35-year international career images primarily, but not exclusively, gay male culture. Concerned with technology, his early photographs explored non-silver processes and electrostatic works. These were followed by instant imaging photographs that culminated with 1 x 2 meter colour Polaroid prints. In the last ten years, Evergon’s works has included larger-than-life nudes of his Mother, “Margaret & I,” and a selection of images gleaned from his lifetime trove of memorabilia accompanied with self-portraits, “Chez Moi: Domestic Content.” In “XXX/L and Passion Plays,” Evergon presented life-size images of himself cavorting with other men. These images are concerned with the crosshatch between images of pornography with the classical icons of Western art.

The latest work, “Sailor’s Lament,” is an installation of two videos, a photograph, wall text and a group of photographs of Evergon strutting for his camera wearing a grass skirt, a sailor’s hat, and a tattoo of a red haired mermaid. Evergon has exhibited at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (2008), the Musée d’art de Joliette (2007), the Glenbow Museum, Calgary (2007), the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa (2006) and the Jack Shainman Gallery, New York City (2006).

Evergon is represented by Galerie Trois Points in Montreal, by Edward Day Gallery in Toronto and by Galerie St-Laurent + Hill in Ottawa.
