Gallery 1
Véronique Leblanc (commissaire|curator)
from April 18th 2015 to June 13th 2015

Curator Veronique Leblanc is interested in art practices that address questions of alterity and democracy. Her approach involves analyzing works that explore ways ideological and identity-related constructions participate in the articulation of community life. Bringing together works constructed along polyphonic lines, her exhibition project seeks to highlight the issues raised by art practices based on participatory and performative processes and involving a plurality of voices. Often based on a documentary approach that resembles anthropological field exercises (questionnaires, gathering data), she orchestrates the meeting of a multiplicity of particular voices in forms that create a discrepancy with the reality being documented. This gap then opens a space in which the individual meets the political. The works that Leblanc gathers before us testify at once to relationships between individuality and community and to the tensions between self-affirmation and the integration of normative discourse, though bearing new relationships between individual narratives and history.
