Andréanne Godin The Space in which You Still Exist

Date(s): Apr 9 to May 14 2022

Location: Salle Daniel-Dion et Su Schnee

Exhibition

In this exhibition, titled The Space in which You Still Exist, Andréanne Godin transforms OBORO’s gallery space into an enigmatic forest that can be discovered by strolling under the changing effects of colored lights. Revisiting the landscape genre, the proposal is also inspired by the rich artistic and scientific tradition that has made colors and their perception a fertile ground for endless investigation. With this large-scale installation, the artist pushes the boundaries of drawing even further beyond paper, in order to trigger a unique experience of nature—the pivot of a subjectivity that is both disoriented and clear-sighted.
