At a time when biotechnologies are invading our everyday reality, this exhibition spotlights 11 Qu?bec, Canadian and international artists concerned with current issues related to identity. These artists employ a wide range of mediums (video installation, photography, painting, sculpture etc.) and a metaphorical tone to explore the fantastical possibilities of human mutation. In their imaginative, poetic approach, the human body is multiplied, merges with nature to become an element of the landscape and takes on animal forms, provoking thought on the subject of cloning and the loss of a sense of self.
A catalogue by curator Sandra Grant Marchand, with a contribution by Jean-Ernest Joos and V?ronique Lefebvre, accompanies the exhibition. The 80-page publication contains two essays (in French and English), colour reproductions of the works, and a text presenting each of the artists. Bio-bibliographies and a list of works round out the publication. The catalogue may be purchased for $34.95 at your local bookseller.
