LUCE MEUNIER—DANIEL LANGEVIN—SYLVAIN BRETON

États

In addition to being pictorial, the three proposals have another point in common: the motif is the sensitive point of the works. How can one still subscribe to the motif of tracing without being assimilated to the multiple returns to figuration that followed the turning point of abstraction?

NUIT BLANCHE 

NUIT SONORE 2006
Concert | Sound Performance

To illuminate the night, to make it look like day, to erase the boundary between light and dark, to do the impossible in other words. In the shadow of Thomas Bégin's installation and Julie Doucet's engravings, the voices, sounds and music of multiple artists.

17 February to 18 March

THOMAS BÉGIN

We're looking for you

Galerie B-312 is pleased to welcome We're looking for you, an installation by Thomas Bégin for which the artist transformed the gallery's large room into a strange camera obscura. The windows of the large hall are obstructed by a mechanized modular structure.

MARIE-FRANCE BRIÈRE

LES BOUCHES D’OMBRE

Marie-France Brière presents in the small room of the galerie Les bouches d'ombre. On the wall, two works, and in the space, two voices. Marie-France Brière has joined the audible to the visible and thus led the sculpture where it was not expected: on the wall and in the voice.

VALÉRIE BLASS

Presque ça

Galerie B-312 is pleased to welcome Valérie Blass' most recent sculptures in its large room. Each plastic proposition is composed of two contiguous works, one of which seems to be double the other, without us being able to distinguish the original from the copy.

PATRICK BERNATCHEZ

Mécanique et débordements

The mechanics of time is a territoriality; it is a material so flexible that we sometimes forget its structure in the enormous purity of the stridence of movement. To approach time in its movement and/or its fixity is to appropriate the space of an overflow.

OLIBRIUS

With this theatrical diptych, Olibrius opens a space between theatre and performance where, to serve Bataille's text, the actor first tests the resistance of his body in immobility; an immobility around which the whole event is structured.

ANDREW FORSTER—DAVID MILLER—ISABELLE BERNIER—PIERRE GINER—SHAUNA BEHARRY

Push

Push is a consideration of how photography engages the profound violence of the modern era. What is its capacity to reflect on this relationship and what is the necessity to do so? To what extent does such a reflection reside in a work whether explicitly intended or not.

CHANTAL GOULET—MARIE A. CÔTÉ—SYLVIE BOUCHARD—SYLVIE READMAN

RÉCIPROCITÉS

Gallery B-312 proposed to invite a scientist to design an exhibition as a scientist. It had in mind this threefold question: how does the scientist's sensitivity intersect with that of the artist? How would the artist respond to the questions of an art-oriented scientist?

Mathieu Beauséjour, Monique Lévesque and Daniel Poulin kindly accepted to talk about the effects that the figure of the virus has awakened in them from the place of their respective disciplines, artistic practice, psychoanalysis and computer science.

JOSEPH BRANCO

RÉCAPITULATION : PEINTURE DE GENRE DÉSASSEMBLÉE

About ten years ago, Joseph Branco and Mary A. Côté rented a space in the Belgo building to showcase their work. This space is essentially the same as Gallery B-312 today. A curious memory effect will perhaps present itself to those who remember the 1990 exhibition. And the work that the artist proposes to us also...

13 March to 13 April

LISE BOISSEAU

PEINTURE

Painting, this assiduous work of the surface, is the leitmotiv of Lise Boisseau's plastic research. Constructed by an accumulation of caches and successive layers, the painting lets a dense, even tight content rise to its surface.

PRÉLIMINAIRES

Artworks sale

GILDAS BERTHELOT

LA SALLE DE BAIN

With La Salle de bain, the artist stages a huge - even too huge - bathtub in the gallery space. The dramatization of a utilitarian object with playful forms questions the relationship between decorative art and domestic art and sculpture, this so-called "major" art in the twentieth century.

11 February to 11 March

JOSÉE BERNARD— MICHEL BOULANGER—MARTHE CARRIER—KEVIN DEFOREST—CHRISTIANE DESJARDINS—JOHANNE GAGNON—FRANÇOIS LACASSE

MARTIN BORDEN

SOUS LE JARDIN

The idea of the garden as a meeting point between the natural and human worlds emerges from the fertile soil of images that myth, science, religion and language have deposited in our minds. Some of our most deeply rooted notions about our place in the living world take root in this subterranean landscape.

MARIELA BORELLO

ABSENCE

Palomitas Biancas (Little White Doves), schoolgirls' uniforms made of brown paper, recall the rigidity and discomfort of such uniforms, as well as their fragility. Skin Me, wax "skins" pinned to the wall, is both a ritual of beauty and torture.
