ANDRÉE-ANNE CARRIER | DE L’ÉCRAN À LA PIERRE
From October 29 to December 10, 2022.
"Digital technologies are now omnipresent in our lives. Their dizzying power of attraction and influence is perceptible in many spheres of society. And the new artistic possibilities they offer are seducing an increasing number of artists, who are creating new forms of materiality. Today, digitization, modelling and 3D printing are widely used modes of production. How does this affect and transform the practice of sculpture? This questioning is at the root of Andrée-Anne Carrier's exhibition "De l'écran à la pierre," which combines sculpture and installation works that allude to the fabrication tools of 3D imaging. The works presented here are handmade and have a certain fascination that is similar to that of screens." - Excerpt from a text by Anne Phiilippon
Artist Biography Excerpt
Originally from Joliette, Andrée-Anne Carrier has lived and worked in Montreal since 2009. Her sculptural work engages with domestic objects from mass culture, often generic and recognizable: popular knick-knacks, everyday accomplices, markers of time and reminders of events. Using casting and other fabrication techniques as processes of alteration, her artistic practice becomes a laboratory space; a place where the material integrity of things is allowed to be disrupted in order to thwart the senses, question materiality and (re)visit the sacred.
- Vernissage on October 29, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Discussion with the artists starting at 3:00 p.m.
