Exhibition Brochure

Opening Reception: Wednesday April 15, 2015, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm

As part of Social Currents series, VideoZoom: Between-the-Images is a videographic anthology of works by seven Quebec artists who define themselves not as filmmakers but as visual artists motivated by the exploration of the image in motion. The exhibition, in the form of a continuous showing of all the works on the same screen, offers the advantage of conveying shared sensibilities, displaying affinities for an often carefully crafted image, attesting to concern for an audio presence and revealing effective elliptical strategies of the image. These short videos deal with a variety of subjects in the realm not only of politics, popular culture, television and movie imagery but also of the poetical image. This project is offered as a glimpse, an opening, a breach into the immense production of images that characterizes the contemporary world.

Artist Biographies: Sophie Bélair Clément holds an MA in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal and is currently working toward a PhD in literary and intermedia studies from Université de Montréal and Université Rennes 2. Grounded in the performative experience, her body of work raises questions of artistic licence and historiography. Her work has been presented in solo and group shows in Quebec and abroad: Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), Hartware Medien Kunstverein (Dortmund, Germany), Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova Museum (Turku, Finland). In 2010 she participated in the Galerie de l’UQAM group show Expansion.

Olivia Boudreau holds an MA in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal. Her videos explore the notions of presence, intimacy and slowness, with the minimalist narratives finding their meaning in the duration, the refined details and the contemplative mindset they demand. She has exhibited frequently in Montreal, shown her work at the Loop Festival, in Barcelona, and Néon diffuseur d’art contemporain, in Lyons, and carried out a residency in Valencia. At Galerie de l’UQAM, she exhibited solo in 2009 and presented one of her videos in the 2010 group show Expansion. www.oliviaboudreau.com

Jacynthe Carrier holds a BA in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal and an MFA from Concordia University. She makes true tableaux vivants, staging characters in performative situations. Each character is tasked with performing a specific action or manipulating an evocative object in an often rural environment. Territorial appropriation is central to the artist’s concerns. Her videos have been part of programs in France, Brazil, the United States and elsewhere. In 2010 she participated in the Galerie de l’UQAM group show Expansion. www.jacynthecarrier.com

Michel de Broin holds an MA in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal. With sculpture, installation and video, he subverts or appropriates everyday objects to create a point of disruption or reversal of meaning that questions the systems in which we live. His work has been shown at venues including MASS MoCA (North Adams), Mac/Val (Paris), Musée Tinguely (Basel), Villa Arson (Nice), Berlinische Galerie and Haus Am Waldsee (Berlin), Exit Art and On Stellar Rays (New York), Villa Merkel (Esslingen) and Center for Curatorial Studies (Annandale-on-Hudson). At Galerie de l’UQAM, he exhibited solo in 2007 and presented one of his videos in the 2010 group show Expansion. www.micheldebroin.org

Pascal Grandmaison holds a BA in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal. Known for his videos and photographs, he deploys exacting precision and poetic sensibility in exploring the boundaries of the perceptible, things hidden in the interstices. His works question the relationship between sign and meaning, form and function. He has exhibited extensively in Canada and at Jack Shainman Gallery (New York), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Whitworth Art Gallery (Manchester, England) and Casino Luxembourg. In 2010 he participated in the Galerie de l’UQAM group show Expansion. (89 words) www.pascalgrandmaison.com

Frédéric Lavoie holds a BSc in anthropology from Université de Montréal and an MA in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal. For his videos, he captures images in the urban landscape or in quotidian banality and pairs them with a recreated soundtrack to explore issues related to listening and observing. His work has been shown in exhibitions in Montreal and at international video events including European Media Art Festival (Germany), Split Film Festival (Croatia), Antimatter Film Festival (Victoria, BC) and Signal + Noise Media Art Festival (Vancouver). At Galerie de l’UQAM, he exhibited solo in 2007 and presented one of his videos in the 2010 group show Expansion. www.fredericlavoie.net

Aude Moreau holds an MA in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal and BFA from Université Paris 8. Over the past decade, she has produced a body of work that draws on her dual training in stage design and the visual arts. Her multidisciplinary, often monumental works are imbued with poetic sensitivity and cast a critical eye on society. She has exhibited in Quebec, France, the United States, Luxembourg and the Czech Republic. This is her first showing at Galerie de l’UQAM. www.audemoreau.net
