The exhibition "in a single breath" is a continuation of my work in which text, images, and selected fragments document the traces of life. By considering archives and writing as vectors of speech, and guided by my interest in filial bonds, an inventory gradually began to take shape between 2021 and 2022. Through a familiar working process of searching, collecting, and editing, this intuitive and methodical incursion allowed me to explore the entire archive of Canadian women artists in the 410 section of the collection, which led to a very personal rereading of its contents. How could I (re)embody these archives (re)incarnate their voice, and translate them differently?

"in a single breath" is the site of a personal and collective composition of desire, dreams, the banality of life, old age, memory, grief, and loss. It’s an incomplete portrait that can be (re)deployed indefinitely. This exhibition is its first breath. - Sophie Jodoin

- Opening on Thursday, April 13, at 6 p.m.
