Five artists whose approaches address the concept of distortion have been brought together for this occasion. Anti+reflet is a group show which sets forth the diverse ways in which matter - such as plaster, upholstery, and photography - and the object’s function - statuette, bust, furniture or portrait - can be delved into. Despite their various processes, these artists reveal their pursuit of unexplored paths to clear, and their quest for new channels leading to both the familiar and the unknown. Anti+reflet, or anti-reflective, bears this name because these works of art cast a light on areas different from custom, convention, or popular belief. Instead of reflecting, they cannibalise the codes which they draw from, in search of alternatives.
The vernissage will be held Thursday, June 22nd, as of 5 PM.
Eric Nado lives and works in Montreal. For 20 years, he has collected, deconstructed and reassembled industrial objects in series. Each of the resulting sculptures is a true technical exploration. His concern for skills and performance always comes with a common thread to the artist’s work: the storytelling of our collective past through the creation of evocative works.
