Caroline Cloutier
From January 22nd 2022 to March 19th 2022

Caroline Cloutier is pursuing her research on spatial practices in photography. Integrated into the architecture of the places they have invested, these installations demonstrate extensions of the photographic device that specifically address the modes of interaction between image, space, and perception. Using a formalistic approach, coupled with a spare and minimal construction, Cloutier modulates and opens the space by using the artifice of lighting and mirrors to create virtual passages and trompe-l’oeil illusions. She thus produces a mise en abîme of the mechanics of the exhibition. Her new series attests to reflections based on spatial constructions, combining interlocking spaces, off-camera activation, and plays of perspectives.

Caroline Cloutier is the recipient of the 2020 Yvonne L. Bombardier Graduate Scholarship in Visual Arts from the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation.

J. Armand Bombardier Foundation
Created in 1965 by the wife and three daughters of the inventor, the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation contributes to the advancement of individuals, organizations and communities by supporting initiatives that foster social innovation and capacity building. Since its inception, the Foundation has been chosen by Bombardier as one of the vehicles through which it fulfills its social responsibility.

One foundation, three destinations: in addition to its philanthropic work, the Foundation supports the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier and the Yvonne L. Bombardier Cultural Centre in Valcourt, through which it promotes academic perseverance and access to the arts and culture.

Haut voltage

Offering experiences that engage visitors in slowness and duration, Olivia Boudreau’s practice places great importance on the representation of the female body in performance. This temporality establishes a presence that prompts a reconsideration of our relationship to the moving image. With Haut voltage, Boudreau initiates a new creative cycle, focused on the theme of reconciliation, reparations, and restoration. According to the artist, “this is probably the most important gesture we have to make at this time. The idea is expressed as much in the everyday life of our objects as in the need to rethink our relationship to the other and to the world.” Boudreau plans to produce a video installation in the form of a shot-sequence that unfolds over time, along with a performance based on a protocol by which each performer depends on the other to ensure their own well-being and safety.
