For the past 20 years, Charles LaBelle has explored both the geographic and psycho-geographic space of the city. Celebrating what Walter Benjamin called the “phantasmagoria of the modern metropolis,” LaBelle’s interest is in locating and investigating the intersection of place and subjectivity – the way human identities are formed in relationship to the spaces they inhabit and pass through. After working in a variety of media for most of his career, as of 2007 LaBelle has been devoting himself to a single, ongoing project: Dwelling 1997 – ongoing.
