Gallery A /Galerie A
At night, we become in some ways the adventurers of our own minds. By plunging deeper into the meanders of our imagination we learn to tame the Other, the Unknown. The series Cosmic Manifestations and ONEIROS are the result of researches and dreamlike visions transmitted through dreams and meditative visions. These series aims to immerse the viewer in a universe similar to a waking dream, where consciousness and reality intertwine with the imaginary. My work travels through worlds awakening reflection on the connection between Universe and humankind.
Gallery A / Galerie A
Light has obsessed humans since the dawn of time and as a photographer I find myself constantly observing, exploring, and playing with light. A lightstalker, I’m intrigued by different light sources, each with its unique qualities & characteristics. Light is at the core of this photographic ensemble, with the play of light and mirrors creating infinite reflections. A meditation on the zen notions of infinity and emptiness, this series is an exploration of a seemingly infinite space.
Gallery B and C / Galeries B et C
Six stylized portraits of some of Canada’s most notable female musicians. Recognized for their talent and for their complex approach to making music, the subjects of FemCan are trailblazers, teachers and activists, paving the way for artists of the future.
Theatre / Théâtre
Set one evening in present-day Moscow, 16 year-old Pyotr is baited by an ultra-nationalist group known for their violent abductions and attacks bolstered by Russia’s ‘gay propaganda’ law, but Pyotr has a dangerous secret.
Imaginaires Collectifs / Collective Imaginations
Upper Gallery and Vitrine / Galerie supérieure et vitrine
MAPP_MTL is exhibiting micro-mapping works of all forms – sculptural, filmic, installation art, augmented reality, immersive or responsive. The juxtaposition of these video mapping art works is non linear, and non formal, but sensual. The artists are invited to use light as their brush. They collectively augment the gallery space to transport us into the intimacy of their imagination. They transform our perception of digital art practices from the technical and hermetic to bring us to a more sensuous perspective. The exhibition makes us question the multiple spaces we occupy both individually and collectively, to invoke our Collective Imaginaries.
