Objectifier l'écriture

CLARA COUSINEAU

Exhibition
September 9 - October 16, 2021

The dates of the exhibition might change according to the sanitary measures.

The first forms of writing allowed our ancestors to keep track of things. The accumulation of things, intrinsic to the overconsumption that defines our era, becomes here the very material of writing. The exhibition Objectifier l'écriture questions the place of objects in the construction of daily life by tracing links between art, the material world and writing as a mode of communication and archiving of thought.

Clara Cousineau is an artist whose work is embodied in a plurality of mediums. In a constant back and forth between 2D and 3D, she explores the domestic environment and the symbolic charge of the objects that inhabit it. She received her BFA with a specialization in sculpture from Concordia University in 2018. That same year, she won the national award in the BMO 1st Art! Her work has been shown at Justina M. Barnicke Gallery (Toronto), General Hardware Contemporary Gallery (Toronto), Art Mûr Gallery and FOFA Gallery (Montreal), as well as in several group exhibitions. Clara Cousineau is originally from Quebec City and lives and works in Montreal.
