LYNN KODEIH | EFFACER VOIR OU LE JOUR OÙ J’AI ARRÊTÉ DE DESSINER
From February 10 to April 1, 2023.
In "Effacer voir ou le jour où j’ai arrêté de dessiner," Lynn Kodeih tries to give concrete form, through images, to the fluctuation that exists between various places: places of origin, affiliation, loss, and colonization.
Kodeih reflects on her position as an immigrant to a country haunted by its colonial history, as well as the ongoing relationship with space (the one taken away, the one being offered). What can we bring to this new environment and what should we leave behind? What defines a territory? What makes it sterile, hostile, or hospitable?
Through experiments in video, printing, and ceramics, the artist develops protocols for making the image disappear in order to explore its materiality. In the context of an image-saturated world, her work attests to the need for taking another look at spaces of loss in order to reimagine them.
Artist: Lynn Kodeih, graduating Master’s student in Visual and Media Arts, UQAM.
