Ginette Prince
From September 7th 1991 to October 6th 1991
Croisades, chroniques de fin de siècle

Ginette Prince is a multidisciplinary artiste who incorporates installation, performance and photography in her work. She will be presenting at the gallery, as an integral part of "le Mois de la Photo à Montréal", a photographic installation dealing with the problematics of spatialization, of support and the theatreification of the photographic image.

This artist's work is fundamental to the issues of the boundary, the link and the limit, which are at the heart of this gallery's present course of exploration. Here is an approach which brings together the notions of structure, materiality, theme, process and surface. These elements, when combined with other clues, which resides in the passage between the objects and the temporality that compose the installation.

In a vein which could be qualified as 'Baroque', the symbols, analogies and iconographic formulas gather and settle in the space to reveal a "me" which taked root and takes body within a personal mythology.

The video night will focus on the video production of Chantal DuPont and include two tapes in which Ginette Prince participated.
