BRISE GLACE SOLEIL BLANC
Jacynthe Carrier’s Brise glace soleil blanc (Ice Breaker White Sun) started off as a blend of video and photography. For this exhibition, the artist presents a selection of three photographs that focus our attention on certain moments of a winter performance frozen in time. The works presented here were chosen because of their contrasting perspectives and compositions. In these three photos, we are offered a vision of places having opposite and antagonistic characteristics, such as hot and cold, gaseous and solid. The narration tends to be simultaneously dreamy and real, and is presented in a fragmented manner that leads us back to our own personal experiences.
Materials: Hahnemühle Photo Rag inkjet print on paper.
The body, the environment and the relationship with the territory are the fundamental themes of Jacynthe Carrier’s artistic approach. She uses a variety of interventions to investigate and reconnect with urban and rural places. Bolstered by mythologies at once personal and collective, her works create narratives that also invite us to reclaim our environment.
Jacynthe Carrier was born in Lévis, Canada, and holds a Master of Fine Arts in photography from Concordia University in Montreal. Her work was shown at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and in various exhibitions in France, Canada, Mexico and the United States.
