Jacynthe Carrier at the
Musée d'art de Joliette

Jacynthe Carrier’s series PAYSAGE is part of the Musée d’art de Joliette’s (MAJ) winter 2018 program. The exhibition PAYSAGE [LANDSCAPE]: faire le jour explores the body’s relationship to nature and features a new video installation.

“PAYSAGE : faire le jour [LANDSCAPE : shaping the day] portrays an expedition through various kinds of terrain (glade, underbrush, rock quarry, lake) where, over the course of a day, a series of primary actions are performed prior to its occupation: surveying, clearing, gathering, planting, and drinking from the naturally available water. A certain solemnity transpires from the work, recalling earlier founding eras when these same tasks where carried out.”
