Pièces montées by Jacynthe Carrier


Pièces montées is Jacynthe Carrier’s new publication, published by Éditions esse, for which the artist created a tableau vivant on the theme of food.

To quote Sylvette Babin, director of esse arts + opinions: “The piece takes the form of a banquet uniting seventeen guests who manipulate various plant materials and foods. From each image—from fruit-stained hands lingering on materials and sullying the whiteness of flour and fabrics, to glass and porcelain sculptures, mounds of spices, or paths of cherries—emanates a poetry both pure and powerful.”

Jacynthe Carrier’s photographies are accompanied with a poem by Laurence Brunelle-Côté.

Bilingual, this publication is available on Éditions esse’s website and at Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran.
