Ingrid Bachmann
From October 31st 2003 to December 13th 2003
Le sublime portatif (ou le sublime des unitaires)

This very material and somewhat practical exhibition explores the possibilities of containing the sublime in a more manageableform. The sublime often invokes the grand, the ethereal and generally involves leaving the cares of the material world behind. Certainly, you rarely think of laundry and the sublime at the same time.

This exhibition offers sublime experiences (and a few nasty ones),as well as practical and handy hints on encountering the sublime.

Ingrid Bachmann is an artist whose work spans a range of practices and media. She is interested in the complicated relationship between the material and virtual realms. This interest is expressed through a studio practice, writing, lecturing, and organizing events and exhibitions. She uses redundant, as well as new technologies, to create generative and interactive artworks, many of which are site-specific. She is presently Associate Professor in Studio Arts at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec and is the co-editor of Material Matters, a critical anthology of essays that examines the relations of material to culture.
