Guillaume La Brie at CIRCA Contemporary Art Center, Montreal

« L’exposition en cours » held at [CIRCA Contemporary Art Center|http://www.circa-art.com/|en] (Montreal) is an experimental project, which consists in a dialogue between three creation process to create a coherent final work. This work will deal with the unexpected situations that can generate a collaboration between [Guillaume La Brie|tag:Guillaume La Brie], who usually introduces modifications in the exhibition space, Edouard Pretty who works on the marks we let through our actions, and Eric Cardinal who generates original installations through the accumulation of modified objects. The goal of « L’exposition en cours » is not to present each of those three works but to force the artists to look for a consensus between each of their creations to find a result which would be satsfying on an aesthetic point of view for all of them. This project is above all a system based on a relation between different and special visual experiences.

The idea is not to create a work as a team or to reach an expected result but to set the creation against the absence of any controlled order or rythm as each artist is depending on the works made by the other ones. The only security is the one of the materials and tools we use as well as the one the artist enjoy during his own creation process. Where: CIRCA, Montreal, 372 rue Ste Catherine O. espace 444

When: till december 20th, opening on december 13th (from 5 to 8 pm)

Guillaume La Brie is one of the artist presented on the homesession site: [Guillaume La Brie’s page|/02_artists/artist_GuillaumeLaBrie.html|en].
