Lune / Lumière / Photo / Paysage
Foyeurisme project lead by Alexis Lagimodière-Grisé
The exhibition consists of six canvases forming a work mounted in the windows of the atrium of the Théâtre Cercle Molière as well as a photographic work. The canvases form a slightly abstract landscape of plains grasses under the light of a full moon. Everything is done by a process of cyanotyping and painting. The sky takes shape using sunlight; a process where the pigments burned allow the sky to take color, except where the light was blocked to preserve the raw canvas and give shape to a moon. The work mirrors the Lagimodière-Gaboury park, drawing inspiration from the elements of this landscape. The second work, a photographic one, is installed on the Tyndall stone wall. A photo of a future wave on the (red?) river offers geometric shapes in no way complementary to that found in the stone.
