—OPENING FRIDAY NOVEMBER 14, 2008 AT 5 PM

On the occasion of the exhibition Le moment de la déprise, the gallery is pleased to welcome Raphaëlle de Groot in its main space. Each time the works of this artist leave behind various kinds of objects that she conserves meticulously. For this exhibition, day after day, the artist will devote her time to cutting, dissecting, crumbling, disintegrating and pulverizing these objects. These gestures are not done in vain, they undo and de-compose, yet the actions lead to another, that of abandonment, Déprise.-The performances and past installations of Raphaëlle de Groot generated a substantial visual material. The artist wished to reinvest these images, these remains of experiences, with Johanne Jarry (writing) and Paul Martin (graphics), creating The common space, a collective publication which will continue throughout the exhibition.-All these actions take place outside the opening hours of the gallery. From then on, the exhibition will be in the form of an installation of maneuvers.
