LEILA ZELLI. TERRAIN DE JEUX
Galerie de l’UQAM will start the year off with the exhibition Leila Zelli. Terrain de jeux. Zelli, a graduating MFA student in Visual and Media Arts at Université du Québec à Montréal, will present an experiential installation that questions our relationship to online and mediated images.
No image can ever be understood in just one way because it exists under the kaleidoscope of human interpretation. We only read images through the lens of our own knowledge, experiences, beliefs, and a priori culture, which together make up our singular vision of the world. Nevertheless, each day, we see hundreds, if not thousands of images on TV, the Internet, social media, in the street, in newspapers, books, archives or magazines, and we assume our point of view is right.
Exhibition presented from January 11 to February 23, 2019
