Marina Gadonneix

Sundays, October, 20, November 10, and December 8 · 2 p.m.

In her photographic series Phénomènes [Phenomena], Marina Gadonneix explores scientific models that replicate natural events by probing the theatricality of the laboratory. Through their artificial (re)production, these phenomena (an avalanche, a tornado, lightning, and so on) literally take shape and become things—entities that we can now grasp.


Patrick Coutu
The Attraction of the Landscape

Sundays, October, 20, November 10, and December 8 · 3 p.m.

Both abstract and firmly grounded in materiality, Patrick Coutu’s works, whether two- or three-dimensional, probe the construction of form. Through seemingly simple gestures, the artist reveals the complexity of seascapes and underwater formations, of landscapes whether rugged or luminous. A fold stands in for the horizon, an algorithm plants a garden.his first major solo show looks back on the artist’s 30-year career and features several new works.
