Opening reception on Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Birch Contemporary is pleased to present For the time being a solo exhibition by Toronto-based artist Ginette Legaré. Legaré’s new sculptural works mine what remains available in reused objects and materials after their initial inscription in, and erasure from, more functional work sites. In these sculptures and installations she continues to expand her search into the often overlooked and elusive relations among objects within the various social, material, and historical contexts they occupy. Essentially, as she puts it “Though much has been said about objects, they remain disarmingly intriguing. They compel me to engage with the ideas, perceptions, and other intangibles they inevitably host.”

The artist would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario. 

Gallery hours are Wednesday to Friday: 10 am to 6 pm; Saturday: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Saturday, September 20, 2008 - 4:00am to Sunday, October 19, 2008 - 4:00am

Espace 72 in Dison, Belgium presents an exhibition of work by Faculty of Art Professor Ginette Legaré & Andréanne Abbondanza-Bergeron.

Le profil de l’exposition, c’est l’exposition du profil de travaux faisant l’objet d’études 3D. Le repère initial est dicté par des objets ou attitudes qui s’inscrivent dans le bon ordre des choses.

L’individu se voit impliqué dans une prestation où sont pressentis les sens dans tous leurs états. Il y a ébauche d’action et de la fonction de profil. On y extrait là une composante selon une rotation ou une tangente sur l’objet 3D. On modélise de là une forme riche et de là une expression et la génération de phonèmes. On recrée une surface de vie avec ces points de contrôle en poly-surface. Il y a lieu d’écouter, de consentir et d’en parler pour en dire les méandres et sentir les nuances pour en mieux cerner le profil.

Venue & Address: 
Espace 72 rue de mont 72 - 4820, Dison, Belgium
