Here is a New Year’s resolution for 2016: never miss another exhibition at Voix Visuelle! To start off on the right foot, you can come and see this one: Souhaits, from Pilar Macias. After an artist residency in Mexico in 2011, she completed a photography project on ex-voto.
Playing with transposition and transparency, she combined photos to create a tension between shots of a particular reality and the resulting hybrid entities. By bringing together the visible and the invisible, the documentary and the fiction, she created her own ex-voto where culture, material, space, beings and ways of seeing and feeling life meet.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, January 21 at 5 p.m. at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle. The exhibition is held from January 16 to February 16, 2016. The gallery is located at 67 Beechwood Avenue (2nd floor), in Vanier, and is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday.
