LEYLA MAJERI : DES PARTICULES EN ERRANCE À LA RECHERCHE D'UN RÉCIPIENT
From March 9 to April 8, 2023.
Leyla Majeri is concerned with ecology of materials, nature, and the political. Her work employs sculpture, silver prints, archives, and plants to broach questions of biology, experimental ethnography, and marginalized forms of knowledge.
With "Des particules en errance à la recherche d’un récipient," Majeri envisions an environment that fosters encounters between languages and materialities. Each of the presented elements testifies to an ecosystem and to a state of constant fluctuation between content and container that leaves a hybrid legacy in its wake.
The artist would like to thank Héromi, Léo, Lila, Martin Emilio, Roxanna and Zaki, for their participation. She also thanks the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Chantier de recherche residency at L’imprimerie, the Intersections residency at the École des arts visuels et médiatiques de l’UQAM, in partnership with Optica, a centre of contemporary art, the Conseil des arts de Montréal, and the team at Skol.
