L’art se trame en ville

C-F_Ouellet

SYN- (Montréal, Canada) Acapulco (Québec, Canada) Myriam Lambert (Québec, Canada) Charles-Frédérick Ouellet (Québec, Canada)

Guest curator: Anne-Sophie Blanchet

The borough of Sainte-Foy–Sillery–Cap-Rouge joins the seventh edition of Manif d’art – The Quebec City Biennial to present at the Maison Hamel-Bruenau the collective exhibit L’art se trame en ville. Its guest curator AnneSophie Blanchet approaches the biennial’s central theme of Resistance by bringing forward the processes through which artists create and maintain what could be called networks of resistance in the city.
The city is a physical tangible network made of roads, bridges, traffic lights… It is also the flow of men, women and machines moving across it every day. The city thus appears as both an urban and a human fabric where political, economic and social stakes intertwine. With mediums as diverse as photography, installation, performance and video, the artists in this exhibit explore the various aspects of the city-dwellers’ reality to create links between real and imaginary life, between the city as it is and as it could be.

Resistance: Idle No More!
Guest curator: Guy Sioui Durand

In the worlds of politics and art, the word “resistance” can faithfully be used to describe aboriginal visions of the world. As part of Manif d’art, the Tortoise gallery of the Huron-Wendat Museum hosts the Resistance: Idle No More! exhibit programmed by the guest curator for the occasion, sociologist and art critic Guy Sioui Durand.

Taking as its starting point the idea that the resilience of visual ideographs has been a source of inspiration for aboriginal peoples from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts and has sustained their political commitment since the first colonial contact, the exhibit will come to life through the “face to face” juxtaposition of works by Sonny Assu, Laich-kwill-tach member of the We Wai Kai First Nation in Cape Mudge and by Teharihulen Michel Savard, a Wendat from Wendake.

Josiane Roberge (Québec, Canada)

Les marcheurs (2013)
Video

The video Les marcheurs features a crowd movement that could be a reminder of those that made recent history. Yet, Josiane Roberge’s work shows no sign of outrage or uproar, but focuses on the changing expressions of the characters. Inner motions become the mirror of societal disruptions.

Bernard-Alexandre Beullac (Québec, Canada)

La parabole matérielle III (2010)
Painted wood

Bernard-Alexandre Beullac’s sculptures allude to the shapes of warheads, torpedoes—synonymous with death —and organic figures. Through a metaphorisation process, the artist moves away from the pathetic rhetoric about the violence of wars and adopts the transcendent language of art.

Geneviève Roy (Québec, Canada)

3-Genevieve_Roy

FallUS (2009)
Acrylic and China ink on canvas

Geneviève Roy’s drawings take us to war-torn landscapes where escape is the only option. Echoing this representation of violence, the shapes of the female body, which are part of the image composition, add a plastic ambiguity. Sensualism turns into terror.

Louis-David Létourneau Gagnon (Québec, Canada)

4-Louis_David_Letourneau_Gagnon

Montagne vers le ciel (2010)
Oil, latex, acrylic, felt on canvas

Street art is the expression of rebellion. Louis-David Létourneau Gagnon uses its plastic processes only to create a duality with the subject of his paintings—portraits and landscapes. The artist revisits the classical themes of art with the sensitivity of the urban language.
