Outre-vie/ Afterlife

Opening, Saturday April 14-3PM to 6PM

“Afterlife is when one is not yet in life, when one watches it, when one seeks to enter it. She is not dead but already almost living, almost born, perhaps being born, in this passage beyond borders and outside of time which defines desire. Desire for the other, desire for the world. That life may flow as into a swollen waterskin. And one is still far away. Afterlife is like overseas or beyond the grave. One must pass beyond the rigidity of the obvious, of prejudice, of fears, of habits, pass beyond the obtuse real and enter into a reality at once more painful and more pleasant, into the unknown, the secret, the contradictory, open one’s senses and know. Pass beyond the opacity of silence and invent our existences, our loves, where there is no longer destiny of any kind 1”.

Celia Perrin Sidarous
Artiste à l'école

from April 12th 2018 to June 16th 2018


As part of the Artist at School program developed since 2014 by the OPTICA center, artist Celia Perrin Sidarous invites students in grades 3 of St-Arsène Elementary School (Petite-Patrie) and grade 1 of Jeanne-Mance High School (Plateau Mont-Royal) to think about the poetics of space. Following a tour of the Outre-vie/ Afterlife collective exhibition with the artist, they will undertake a series of film photography workshops using different cameras and a studio designed in the manner of Perrin Sidarous. In the end, the students will produce a collective publication that will be launched at OPTICA on June 13, 2018.

Workshops for Kids: Travel Journal on the work of the exhibition Outre-vie/ Afterlife

Through the use of photography, video, experimental writing, and sound installations, Outre-vie/ Afterlife explores themes such as memory, reality, fiction, and the space between the self and the other. This collective composed of 13 artists, often gathers to informally discuss their individual and upcoming projects. In the spirit of the collective, a table will be set up with crayons, pens, paper, and material for collage and photo transfers. Come join us to create a travel journal where you can inscribe your impressions of the exhibition and more!
