Unseen St. B. presents a communal portrait of St. Boniface Hospital by some of the many people who work and volunteer here. St. B.’s healing and support services depend upon each its workers as well as many different spaces. Yet, much of this complex and busy institution’s operations occur out of sight of the public and even of many its staff since the campus is so large. Galerie Buhler Gallery wanted to celebrate this unseen side.

For this exhibition, GBG invited the hospital’s staff, physicians, and volunteers to take a single cellphone photo of something they wanted to share from their workday. You will see images of things they found funny or weird, pretty or ugly, frustrating or hopeful. Each one is unique, each one is important. The act of participation and sharing is as essential to this project as the images themselves and every photo submitted that adhered to the confidentiality provisos was included.

Unseen St. B. reflects the deep importance of inclusivity and imagination. Portraits are multifaceted things, at once revelatory and mysterious­. One of the most powerful aspects of our portrait is the clarity with which it demonstrates how a whole is inseparable from its many wonderful parts—a perfect sentiment with which to celebrate Galeri Buhler Gallery’s fifteenth anniversary.

Côté inédit de l’Hôpital Saint-Boniface : Un portrait de l’Hôpital Saint-Boniface 

Une exposition spéciale pour le 15e anniversaire de la Galerie Buhler

Le projet Côté inédit de l’Hôpital Saint-Boniface présente un portrait de l’Hôpital Saint-Boniface brossé par de nombreux employés et bénévoles de l’hôpital. Les services de santé et de soutien de l’Hôpital Saint-Boniface dépendent de chacun de ses travailleurs ainsi que des diverses espaces. Et pourtant, la majorité des opérations de cette installation complexe et achalandée se produisent hors de la vue du public, et même de nombreux employés, étant donné que le campus est si vaste. C’est pourquoi la Galerie Buhler Gallery souhaitait célébrer ce côté inédit.

Pour cette exposition, GBG a invité les membres du personnel, les médecins et les bénévoles à capturer avec leur cellulaire une image de leur travail quotidien qu’ils souhaitaient partager. Certains ont choisi des images de choses amusantes ou bizarres, jolies ou laides, frustrantes ou encourageantes. Chaque photo est unique et importante. Le geste de participation et de partage est aussi essentiel à ce projet que les photos elles‑mêmes et chaque photo soumise qui respectait les conditions de confidentialité était incluse.

Côté inédit de l’Hôpital Saint-Boniface reflète l’importance vitale de l’inclusion et de l’imagination. Les portraits ont plusieurs facettes, à la fois révélatrices et mystérieuses­. L’un des aspects les plus puissants de notre portrait est la clarté avec laquelle il démontre comment le tout est indissociable de ses nombreuses et merveilleuses parties–une atmosphère propice à la célébration du 15e anniversaire de la Galerie Buhler.
