"O Narcisse, ma soeur..."
2000-10-05 until 2001-01-21
Musee du Quebec
Quebec, QC, CA

The myth of Narcissus has marked the history of painting since the Renaissance. The exhibition O Narcisse, ma soeur…, prepared by sculptor, photographer and installation artist Lorraine Fontaine, presents a personal, contemporary, feminine view of this legend.

Designed specifically for the Musée’s Gallery 1, the installation represents an imaginary site, a mythical venue with both extroverted and introverted elements.
