The exhibition, l'horizon des événements, examines violent feelings through real videography and digital animation with a completely do-it-yourself style.
The Montreal-based artist has her work on display at La Galerie Du Nouvel-Ontario, where viewers can see it from inside the gallery, or hear the scream of the storm from outside.
“As the visitor arrives at the gallery entrance, there is already a cacophonic flurry of sounds of frantic bird calls, panicked footfalls, ringing bells, howling wolves — which are audible signs of an imminent, unspecified catastrophe,” a media release from GNO stated.
“Through the windows, the visitor sees a storm of windswept leaves and raging flames projected on the walls inside the gallery.
“Once inside, the visitor stands in the heart of a second storm of sound: chinking metal, smashing dishes, women crying out their distress. Behind the wall, a second video is discovered. Here, the fears, desires and humiliations of an intemperate woman are displayed in the form of a crime scene that is both playful and dramatic. The video ends when the scene and the woman are consumed by excessive desire.”
“On the back wall, a silent video shows pale, opaque clouds being continuously regenerated. Subtle splashes of pastel colours travel over the screen.”
The exhibition is on display at the gallery until Feb. 23.
