For always, there are montages*. A montage extravaganza. To think is to edit. (. . .) For as illuminating as an idea may be, it is always part of a montage, it builds or organizes itself by montage, by trial and error, and the uncertainties, or inexplicable certainties, partial or total, by attraction of likes and opposites…
Henri Michaux, Les grandes épreuves de l’esprit.

T.N.: to make a montage can refer to editing, assembling, elevating, arranging, setting up.

The exhibition Images qui boitent by Montreal artist Luc Bourdon consists of two video installations: Hommage and Quinto, as well as three videotapes which explore the relationship between writing and the electronic image.
