Renata Poljak
from November 15th 2014 to December 20th 2014
Great Expectations

*Opening Saturday November 15 at 3 PM*
Renata Poljak’s work, which essentially revolves around memory and identity, reveals how ideologies shape individual and collective history. Merging documentary and fiction, her production articulates her personal experience within social contexts, in particular the traumas of war that ravaged the former Yugoslavia between 1991 and 2001. The multidisciplinary artist is mainly known for her videos, a medium with which she has forged a close connection since 1996: “Though previously I was almost unfamiliar with the notion of video, it answered all of my questions and suddenly everything became clear, as if it awaited a form to get articulated.” 1

Julie Lequin
from November 15th 2014 to December 20th 2014
Bibelots

*Opening Saturday November 15 at 3 PM*
Julie Lequin brings a multitude of media into her practice, especially prominent are drawing, performance, video, sculpture, and installation. At once patched together and conceptual, her works incorporate the life experiences that have moulded her identity. Reproducing characters from scratch that inhabit her existence, Lequin uses humour and satire, but also draws on nostalgia to broach questions of identity and to look back at the places that have shaped her life. As a DIY (Do It Yourself) aficionado with kick for pop culture, she recreates her immediate environment by hand, documenting, archiving, altering, and enhancing it with each artistic intervention.
