CURRENT EXHIBITION (in preparation)
NATHALIE SANCHE
EXPO PAPIER | DENSITÉ

January 21 to April 22, 2018

Originally known for her lighthearted sculptures of busty, « femmes-tiroirs » made from aluminum and wood, the artist, Nathalie Sanche, now excels in designing paper art. She very carefully manipulates the paper into shapes that resemble a chrysalis or sometimes a shell or a trumpet, then arranges them in such a way that they become large, eye-catching sculptures.


Sanche exhibits her sculptural creations according to the architectural style of the building in which they are displayed. The sculptures are pure form - light, white and ephemeral - but at the same time, they possess a density and fluidity that catches the viewer by surprise.

VANESSA ALARIE
EXPO PAPIER | LÉGÈRETÉ

January 21 to April 22, 2018

Vanessa Alarie draws her inspiration from nature, Oriental art and daily life, making lacy creations, where light and shadows intermingle to create detailed, elegant works of art. Armed with a retractable knife, she patiently and skillfully cuts away at solid pieces of paper until it is perforated like lace, then hangs the finished product.

This mass of detailed cut-outs is so intriguing that it gently draws the viewer into the present moment. In contrast to our hectic daily life, these diaphanous installations and black and white tableaux, with their organic, geometric designs, invite us to slow down into a contemplative, meditative state. Extraordinarily original, this exhibition of decoupage will have a wide appeal beyond only art lovers.
