ABOUT THE SHOW

Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain is pleased to present two videos by new gallery artist Isabelle Hayeur, Vertige (2000) and Si jamais la mer (1998), in the gallery's video room.


VERTIGE (2000)

Using footage filmed in an asbestos quarry in Black Lake, Quebec, the video reflects a fascination for a deserted landscape that becomes a quest for the void.

SI JAMAIS LA MER (1998)

Si jamais la mer reveals a paradoxical space, a hypothetical landscape. Into this strange environment sand pits change into sand bars, for a moment the desert becomes a shore. Vanishing visions, glimpses, mirages our regard is confused, submerged. These fictive spaces witness our common taste for grandiose and remind this universe of spectacle induced by the media.


BIOGRAPHY
