Yannick Guéguen
Parcours sonores | Sandscape
Doris Lamontagne
Here | Elsewhere

Opening: Thursday, September 19, 2019, at 5 p.m.

Yannick Guéguen presented Parcours sonores, a video that offered the visitors a sensory experience allowing them to discover a site by adopting the perspective of a third party, as well as Sansdcape, a visual sound composition on the ascent of the St-Lawrence river, from Montreal to the Magdalen Islands.

Doris Lamontagne invited the spectators to create their own fictional character in virtual reality or on paper with her installation Here | Elsewhere. Through it began an exploration of the virtual reality games space, where the individual gets lost and his identity wears off.

June 1 until July 2, 2019
Curator: Marilou Lumbroso
Voix Jeunes Talents | Génération Visuelle (Visual Generation)

Opening: Thursday, June 6, 2019, at 5 p.m.

From June 1 to July 2, 2019, the public was invited to come and discover the work of young artists through the sixth annual Voix Jeunes Talents exhibition, which took place at the Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle.

Curated by Marilou Lumbroso, the exhibition introduced artwork that addressed the theme Visual Generation, which explores issues relating to the growing emergence of a communication made through images: the use of photography to tell a story, the sharing of emojis, a preference for Instragram or Snapchat in social medias… Are images becoming a new language? And how does this new communication channel affect our thoughts and emotions? These are questions that artists have tried to answer.

Included in the gallery below are the images of:
Eva Hegge (Miroir orange) | Leyla Rivet (Une averse sans cesse) | Alex Paradis (sans titre) | Sarah Hodgson (Warped Landscapes) | Ama Ouattara (Geisha) | Brooke Barnett (Beach Bound) | Calvin Bradbury-Jost (Le Marché) | Calvin Bradbury-Jost, Sofia Cazorla-Bak, Lambert De Bané, Aidan Duggan, Karine Leduc, Ally Lemieux-Fanset, Mona Osman, Gabriel Richard-Gaudet (Virtuose)

April 6 until May 14, 2019
Jérôme Bertrand

Opening: Thursday, April 11, 2019, at 5 p.m.

This exhibition of Jérôme Bertrand was accompanied by a performance on the night of the opening.

The transhumanist movement from the 1980s inspired this photographic series which addresses the cult of technology and the myth of human improvement. On the photos, technological implants treat individuals depicted in empty, unemotional space. The artist gives us an insight on his vision of tomorrow’s man, a superman for whom seeking performance allows him to come in contact with technological device, and who could be, potentially, eternally broken.
