Simon Belleau
from September 1st 2016 to October 8th 2016

Employing photography, video, and sculpture, Simon Belleau creates installational works that oscillate between the poetic and the documentary. He uses various strategies to reconsider the image’s informative function, reformulating and personalizing its claimed factual attributes; chemical print alterations disfigure the real, while works packaged and arranged on the ground challenge conventional modes of presentation and deny the experience of visual representation. As he assembles various elements to alter the narrative context surrounding the work, Belleau confirms that a narrative is subject to appropriative manipulations.

Gallery 2
Julien Discrit
from September 1st 2016 to October 8th 2016

In his practice of photography, video, and installation, Julien Discrit is concerned with the representation of both the visible and the invisible world, in real and in fictional places. He appropriates areal views or generates his own to explore how science and cartography enable us to define spatial environments. For any given territory, he presents those areas that are missing or blurred, imagined or altered. He seeks to show perceptible discrepancies between created images and the real territory, he manipulates the lighting, and he isolates moments and indicators of the landscape in order to generate unassignable representations.
