MONTREAL, April 22, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Musée de Lachine invites the
public to visit a new temporary exhibition Disappearance, opening on May 1.
The overstimulated societies in which we live impose a pace and a
lifestyle that increasingly discourages us from stopping to look at
images, from absorbing their various layers of meaning. Our
comprehension of reality is ever more conditioned by abundance and
speed, which leaves little room for slow, discreet, fleeting,
impalpable, sometimes almost invisible things. With this in mind, the
exhibition suggests a pause, offers a space conducive to contemplation,
then invites visitors to slow down and take the time to see.
Disappearance implicitly revolves around three broad concepts - time, space and
perception - while specifically addressing the notions of absence,
memory, transition and non-place.
In addition to selected pieces from the Musée's collection, the
exhibition features works by four guest contemporary artists: Patrick Bernatchez, Olivia Boudreau, Marie-Andrée Houde and Daniel Olson. There will also be a performance by artist Roxane Chamberland on opening night, set for April 30, 7:00 p.m.
Along with the contemporary works, exhibition curator Eve Katinoglou has
selected archival photographs and archaeological finds that provide
visitors with a broad temporal perspective.
Musée de Lachine is located at 1 Chemin du Musée, at the corner of
Saint-Patrick Street. For information and hours: 514-634-3478 or www.museedelachine.com
