EXHIBITIONS 2018

April 10 until May 15, 2018
Denyse Gérin
Nature Morte sous influence
Günes-Hélène Isitan
Hybridités

Opening: Thursday, April 12, 2018, at 5 p.m.

These exhibitions presented the work of Denyse Gérin and of Günes-Hélène Isitan.

Denyse Gérin trained at the Montreal School of Fine Arts and has participated in over 30 solo exhibitions and 64 group ones. She works exclusively with photographs to create digital prints. This exhibit showcases still lifes featuring two commonplace objects, a magnifying glass and a reflector. These particularly irradiant and reflective objects are paired in unusual settings to create works of art.

Günes-Hélène Isitan, an artist-researcher in bio-art, has studied photography and intermedia as well as actual arts. Using “multispecies self-portraits” that evoke both the human face and microorganisms, her series Hybridities presents a humanity in which our skin is neither a container nor a border, but rather an undefined area that is constantly evolving. Each living artwork is created in a Petri dish with the active collaboration of the subjects’ facial microbiota. Günes-Hélène Isitan thanks the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec for their financial support.

The Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council, Canadian Heritage and the City of Ottawa for their support.

February 1 until March 1, 2018
Mathieu Léger
Méthodologies pour touristes

Opening: Thursday, February 1, 2018, at 5 p.m.

This exhibition presented the work of artist Mathieu Léger. Léger has a bachelor of arts from the University of Moncton and has participated in more than 50 residencies. His work reflects on themes of wilderness, time (geologic) and natural biological processes. Integrating the elements of time and space, his projects take the form of performances, texts, photography, and audio-video installations. He is currently working on a performance and writing project spread out over five years, in which he will examine the physicality of spatial awareness and cartographic conventions.

The artist, Mathieu Léger, would like to thank artsnb, the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation and the Canada Council for the Arts for their support.

The Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council, Canadian Heritage and the City of Ottawa for their support.
