« Juste une image »
Curated by Nicole Gingras
4 June to 14 August 2011
Juste une image,the Emmanuelle Léonard exhibition at Expression, juxtaposes two new video works, La Déposition and Le Polygraphe, along with selected photographs and a video produced since 2003. It is curated by Nicole Gingras.
The exhibition title, borrowed from a famous dictum by the filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, simply yet paradoxically sum up the power of the image and the issues of the gaze that Léonard trains on her surroundings. Juste une image showcases the photography and film of an artist focused on the links between fiction and documentary. And for the quality of her iconographic exploration, Emmanuelle Léonard holds a unique place in the landscape of present-day Quebec and Canadian art.
Presentation by Emmanuelle Léonard and Nicole Gingras on Saturday 4 June at 2pm.
Opening Launch on Saturday 4 June at 3pm.
