From July 7 to August 14, 2012, Le Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle presents two exhibitions by two artists: Milieu Naturel, a photographic series by Roger Proulx, and Le Ravissement, a video installation by Eva Quintas.
With his photographic series, Proulx presents outdoor photographs taken in rural areas to which he added different objects and installations: dead pigs, giant nest, a whole in a field… The resulting images are partially imaginary; they demonstrate an ephemeral performance as well as new forms of narrative descriptions.
In her video installation, Quintas explores, in three parts, the theme of love and war metaphors behind rapture and delightfulness. The artist draws parallels between procedures of a virtual and physical meeting: desire to become one and to possess, the illusion and disillusion of junction and distance, deceit and breakup, etc.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Saturday, July 7 at 1 p.m. at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle. The gallery is located at 81 Beechwood Avenue, in Vanier, and is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday.
