For this exhibition, articule transforms the gallery into a garden imagined by four artists through different mediums. Using installation, sculpture, drawing and organic material, each artist works with nature to speak about feminism, history, territory and play.
Kelly Andres presents performative works where the public is invited to occupy vegetal structures and experience geophysical sensations.
Through play, particularly in the form of a mini-golf course, Maude Bernier Chabot reflects on how space is occupied and how natural space is modified.
Through sculpture and painting, Véronique Chagnon-Côté presents her thoughts on the architectonics of the garden and creates an entirely hand-made interior garden.
Maude Deslauriers’ drawings depict natural and vegetative forms and symbols appropriated previously by feminist artists.
Kelly Jaclynn Andres is an artist and PhD Candidate in the Interdisciplinary Humanities program at Concordia University in Montreal. Andres' work intermingles ecology and energies: living cellular species such as plants and micro-organisms; electronic mediums such as radio waves, electrons, and photons; and forms of interactive installations and performances for specific social and geophysical sites.
Maude Bernier Chabot lives and works in Montreal since 2005. She obtained a BFA from UQAM and an MFA in Sculpture from Concordia University. In 2009, she received the Prix Diagonale. Her work has been presented at Circa and Diagonale, Art Mûr, la Casa de la cultura de Hoguin (Cuba) and the Maison de la culture du Plateau Mont-Royal.
Véronique Chagnon-Côté lives and works in Montreal. After completing a Bachelor's Degree at UQAM in 2009, she obtained an MFA in Studio Arts in 2016 from Concordia University. Interested as much by matter than by its appropriation in pictorial space, her work prompts the viewer to take a dual look at her works, both conceptual and formal. Her works have been exhibited in solo exhibitions at Galerie B-312, Action Art Actuel, CIRCA Art Actuel as well as Zalucky Contemporary Gallery.
Maude Deslauriers is a visual artist living and working in Montreal. She currently works mainly with drawing and is also interested in body movement and video. Her work explores different aspects of femininity and is influenced by her dance practice. The connection between the body and the organic world is a recurrent theme in all of her past and present work.
