For her exhibition at Atelier Circulaire, Amery Sandford presents an installation work titled Once in a Lifetime (Une fois dans une vie) that envelopes the space of the gallery through the use of screen printing, sculpture, and installation.

Playing with the perspective of the viewer, the artist explores the fabrication and dismantling of a curious event. The scenes depicted in the prints could take place in an ambiguous public space that evoke the environment of a doomed festival trying hard to impress its attendees, a calamitous celebration of national identity, or a highly anticipated concert that ends in complete chaos.

Amery Sandford pulls us into an absurd universe that contains a poetic reflection and critique on the vicissitudes of the event.
