Exhibitions

One-Eyed-Rabbit
April 16 - July 6, 2016

Artist: Jonathan Plante

Opening reception: Saturday April 16, 2016. From 11:00 a.m.

The first installment of a three-year program dedicated to reaching new audiences, One-Eyed-Rabbit is among the few contemporary art exhibitions for kids. In a playful atmosphere, and through the story of a friendly rabbit, Jonathan Plante invites children aged 4 to 10 to (re)discover the mysteries of visual perception in a variety of ways. Animated video, original paintings, a giant book and mirror anamorphoses will stimulate the young visitors’ imagination. These unexpected and interactive aesthetic experiences address abstraction, art history and optical illusions, inviting children to discover how vision works and the role it plays in the arts.

Artist biography:

Jonathan Plante (b. 1976) lives and works in Montreal, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Concordia University. He works mainly with multidisciplinary installations and studies questions of presence by exploring different image states as they transition from work to document. In 2008, he made a name for himself in Montreal at the 1st Quebec Triennale, organized by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. In 2010 and 2011, his works were featured in two exhibitions: Palindrome at the Musée d’art contemporain des Laurentides and Parallaxe at the Galerie Division. In 2012, he took part in the Symposium international d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul. The artist presented Lapincyclope for the first time in 2013 at VOX, centre de l’image contemporaine, then at the Musée d’art de Joliette. In 2014, he presented a solo exhibition at the Galerie Hugues Charbonneau. His works can be found in both private and public collections.
