Marc Dulude

Causalité

January 29 – March 14, 2015
Opening: Samedi 31 janvier 2015, 16h - 18h
Saturday, January 31, 2015, 4 - 6 pm

In his exhibition Causalité, the artist presents a series of sculptures and drawings related to the idea of “cause and effect.” In the artworks exhibited, the materials are highlighted, as well as their transformation due to physical phenomena. Dulude tries to “recreate” the object; once it is produced, the piece does not represent the final work, but rather, a process of construction or deconstruction. The artwork therefore becomes the vehicle of a reaction through time.

The thin line that separates gaze from perception is an interesting subject to artist Marc Dulude. Through his artistic practice over the last few years, he has tried to highlight the surprising and unpredictable effects that various natural phenomena can have on objects. In his essay L’imaginaire, Jean-Paul Sartre noted that « I always perceive more, and different to what I see. »

zipertatou

À la lueur de Bébé Lune

January 29 – March 14, 2015
Opening: Saturday, January 31, 2015, 4pm - 6pm

« In zipertatou’s world, you can enter through the door. It’s as simple as that. Once inside, you can explore this imaginary space that can barely contain itself, freely, with indescribable pleasure. It overflows from the frames, and onto the gallery walls.

As usual, the palette is generous. And comforting. And crazy. Actually, you might discover that it can be camouflage. It stirs and piles up skilfully into constructed images, amongst which characters from a fictional world are hiding. From then on, we can play the game, uninhibitedly participating in a series of absurd scenarios, where elements which at first glance belong to childhood, are being diverted. »

Incubator, (2013), video still

Incubator

January 29 – March 14, 2015
Opening: Saturday, January 31, 2015, 4pm - 6pm
Round table: Friday, February 27, 2015, 4pm

‘’The video is the high point of a lengthy botanical/art project, during which I was documenting the sprouting of white bean seeds in a series of stills. The film was edited from a sequence of individual images taken at regular intervals, a technique called time lapse.

The result is a heartrending complete lifecycle. The seeds are like living creatures, with the desire and the ability to move, starting as white spiders and transforming into delicate swans flying into death’’
