An Te Liu – White Dwarf

An Te Liu’s imposing installation White Dwarf is on display at the Musée d’art de Joliette for the summer season. The enormous sphere, composed of a multitude of obsolete electronic objects, is presented suspended in the lobby.

Patrick Bernatchez – 180°

The film 180° features a pianist performing a sonata by the Belgian composer Guillaume Lekeu (1870–94) in an empty concert hall with subdued lighting. The movement of the camera reveals, after a time, that the musician and his instrument are in fact upside down, suspended in space.

Annie-Claude Coutu Geoffroy – Éléonores

The same woman appears three times in the video-dance Éléonores: in autumn, we find her in a field of dried corn; in winter, in an outdoor skating rink at night and, in summer, in a lake or on water. Shot outdoors, these unsettling locations, both for the dancer and for the cameraperson, are meant to express the three states represented by the dance.


Crystalloid Structures

To celebrate its grand reopening, the Musée d’art de Joliette is presenting the monumental installation Crystalloid Structures by the artist Andrée-Anne Dupuis Bourret. Comprised of over 10,000 origami pieces, hand-made by the public, this collaborative work is the first to be exposed in the museum’s hall.
