EXHIBITIONS 2021

July – September 2021
Chantal Gervais
Artist residency in research-creation

From July 15 to September 4, 2021, artist Chantal Gervais took over the Voix Visuelle space to develop a 360 degree component video as part of a multidisciplinary project. At the end of her stay, she presented to the public the work she did during her stay.

The artist’s research was motivated by her fascination with the visual, audible and kinetic aesthetics of spinning using a spinning wheel, the making of a 360 video component allowing her to explore this fascination. At the heart of the project is the transformation process of her fifteen-year-old border collie’s fur, recently deceased: the artist collected his undercoat for years with the intention of spinning it into wool. Furthermore, the themes of presence and absence, being and non-being, mourning and recovery, are addressed.

The artist was in person at her presentation at the Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle on Friday, September 3 (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and Saturday, September 4 (2 p.m. to 4 p.m.)

The duration of each visit was limited to 15 minutes, with the respect of health regulations.

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

Exhibition on Instagram


On July 15, 2021, was held the launch of the eighth annual Voix Jeunes Talents exhibition on Instagram. This exhibition will allow the public to discover the work of young artists and to live a unique experience.

The exhibition, titled Défi unsplash (Unsplash Challenge), challenged artists to reproduce freely-usable images from www.unsplash.com as faithfully as possible. The artists were then invited to produce a diptych showing the original work on one side and the reproduced work on the other. The reproduced artworks reflect a fascinating exploration of the photographic processes and the creative spirit of the participants.

The launch of the exhibition took place on Thursday, July 15, on the Voix Visuelle Instagram account.

Le Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council, Canadian Heritage, the City of Ottawa, AGAVF, Marcil Lavallée and the Caisse Desjardins Ontario for their support.

What is digital art? In general, digital artworks are created from a computer or use it to directly produce an aesthetic experience. Digital art is also at the heart of the mission of the Centre d’artistes Visuelle, which wishes to honour the work of some of its members through this virtual exhibition.

Curated by Raymond Aubin, the exhibition brings together the works of Nicole Blundell, Frances Caswell-Routhier, Renée Chevalier, Monique Handfield, Hélène Lefebvre and Richard Robesco. The works were chosen based on the quality of the aesthetic experience, the validity of the theme, the research effort and the quality of the explanatory text.
