Galerie C.O.A is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition titled Copy/Paste/Erase, which will be on display from May 11th to June 10th, 2017.
This collective exhibition sets forth multiple overlapping perspectives on creating visual arts in the Post-Internet era. Its title evokes technological processes, the multitudes of dynamics they generate between subjects and objects, and the changes they create both in style and content. Eloquent and creative strategies, Somber or quirky outlooks, and multiple processes of both traditional and experimental media are highlighted in the kaleidoscopic selection of artwork which comprises Copy/Paste/Erase.
9 emerging and established artists, both local and international, have been brought together for this event: Jérémiedb, Zoltan Veevaete (Canada), Nick Flatt & Paul Punk (Germany), David Rosado (Portugal), Mic Linder (Sweden), Joe Suzuki, Charles Clary, and Mauro C. Martinez (United States).
The vernissage will take place at the gallery on Thursday, May 11th from 5 PM to 10 PM.
Through different mediums and ideals, all the artists here exposed express a common desire to change perceptions, morals or any established fact. Figures and silhouettes represent a necessary transition if not in progress. Objects lose their first aesthetic function to challenge preconceived ideas. Works that need to be contemplated, to see in each movement a breach revealing what they read.
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.
