Se faire un bleu, Renée CarrierFrom February to April 11, 2021

Franchir la ligne rouge

Rougir de honte (“Blushing with shame”), Envoyer au diable vert (“Go to hell!”) and Rire jaune (“Forced laugh”) are among the works being exhibited at the Cultural Centre by Renée Carrier, a multidisciplinary artist from Amos. A colourful, light-hearted collection, it comprises a variety of paintings, as well as floor and wall installations. By incorporating aspects of popular culture into her minimalist monochromes, she cleverly explores the evocative power of colour on the human soul. The titles she gives her artwork are interpreted with dazzling effect, enveloping the viewer in strong, colourful images that bring the senses alive.

Inflexions, Marie-Josée LaframboiseFrom February to April 11, 2021

In her sculptural approach, the Montreal artist Marie-Josée Laframboise, explores the concept of “networks” in all their guises. She is fascinated by the many interrelational webs that weave the world together, inviting the viewer to look at them from a different angle, through her in situ installations.

Inflexions IV is part of this current exhibition. It’s a soaring, playful, dynamic work of art that dominates its surrounding space – a representation of how different systems can combine and intertwine. Similar in appearance to a three-dimensional drawing that takes shape before our very eyes, this immersive installation comprises pieces of plastic hoops skillfully linked by Laframboise. In addition to this dynamic corpus, there are a series of four photographic montages entitled Combinaisons aléatoires (Random combinations). In this series also, the subject is coloured tubes. Crowning the Inflexions projects is Le Gymnase Dessin 4 (The Gymnasium Drawing 4) highlighting the lines that mapped out one of the most iconic settings from our schooldays.

Abrazo : Montréal, ville de tango par Caroline HayeurFrom February to April 11, 2021

Abrazo

Abrazo is the result of a collaboration between Montreal artists Caroline Hayeur and D. Kimm. The former is a professional photographer who specializes in documentary work and contemporary portraiture. D. Kimm is an avant-garde, indisciplinary artist known for her experimental work, as well as a former tango dancer. Through the exhibition Abrazo (roughly translated as ​embrace’), they lead the viewer on an intimate journey through the world of tango.

By combining photographic installations and immersive video projections, the dynamic duo offers a close up and personal view of this dance universe, far removed from the usual cliched images. Captivating, rhythmic tango music is the backdrop for discovering the subtle signals between the dancers – from Buenos Aires to Montreal – allowing viewers to see this seductive social dance from an entirely different perspective.

This exhibition was produced in collaboration with the creative production company Les Filles électriques.
