and curators Louise Déry, Michèle Magema, and Anne-Marie Ninacs.

Presentation of the exhibition in the form of a guided tour, followed by a question-and-answer period.

From one artistic project to the next, for over twenty years, Kim Waldron has practiced modifying her perspective by borrowing, for a given period of time, the living conditions and daily experiences of other people. She has thus slipped into the domestic intimacy of couples, into the skin and clothing of various professionals, into the roles and responsibilities of a politician or into the manufacturing actions of the Chinese. In so doing, she gradually retraces and expands the sequence of gestures and social issues that bind people together on different scales. The photographic series she draws from these experiments testify strongly to the fact that "making society" is an adventure requiring the voluntary definition of an individual ethic, action within given and created family relationships, involvement in communities inscribed in localities, and militancy in a globalized world.

Bringing together all her projects for the first time, this exhibition reveals a vast self-portrait that is at once singular and multiple, true and fictional, punctual and temporal, embodied and delegated, where the recurring presence of the artist models, without making herself a source of exemplarity, the debates, limits and complexities of any commitment to civil society. In 2023, Kim Waldron incorporated herself in order to reflect on the capitalist structure of the company and its hold on collective decisions. Administered by herself and three curators, Société Kim Waldron ltée sells nothing and offers no services. Rather, in producing an exhibition, it seeks to act concretely in the real world to imagine how to improve this system of governance, nourish it with a human dimension, make the values of its members transparent and create a genuine place of trust.
