"L'ÉCHO DES LIMBES: David Altmejd, Patrice Duhamel, Michael A. Robinson and Ève K. Tremblay"
2005-10-14 until 2005-11-19
Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Concordia University
Inspired by the work of the author Lewis Carroll, this exhibition invites viewers, like Alice pursuing the White Rabbit, to penetrate inner worlds dedicated to describing transient states. In the form of real or imaginary personal fragments, the invented worlds of David Altmejd, Patrice Duhamel, Michael A. Robinson and Ève K. Tremblay constitute a kind of investigation where the common motif is a reference to the unconscious, an unpremeditated quest in the labyrinth of the psyche.
Whether through dreams, tales, delirium or the absurd, these artists create a multi-referential iconography opening onto parallel worlds. They propose the exploration of an elsewhere, of an outside time, even of another duration, in which the process of inner transformation is both the basis and the objective. Enigmatic and oneiric, these artists' works question the basis of rational thought while demonstrating the frailty of our certainties.
