ABOUT THE SHOW

Lyne Lapointe: Selected Works

Selected Works by Lyne Lapointe is a collection of recent works on glass and works with acupuncture needles, as well as seven large paintings from the series La Pierre Patiente (The Patient Stone).

The works with acupuncture needles echo the devastating link humans maintain with the environment and other living species. The work is rooted in a certain "healing art" intended to re-establish an energizing balance. By virtue of their flexibility and their tendency to vibrate at the slightest movement, the large number of needles used cannot fail to evoke the phenomenon of magnetic fields, opposing forces that attract and agitate, allowing for a myriad of possible effects.

The works on glass express yet again Lyne Lapointe's fascination with the complexity of visual perception and its potential distortions.

[A] term in Persian, 'the patient stone' ... used in times of anxiety and turbulence. Supposedly, a person pours out all his troubles and woes into the stone. It will listen and absorb his pains and secrets, and this way he will be cured. Sometimes the stone can no longer endure its burdens and then it bursts.
- Azar Nafisi

The seven paintings of La Pierre Patiente (The Patient Stone), inspired by the ideas of darkness, light and memory, led Lyne Lapointe to revisit the use of phosphorescent pigments, a technique she used when first starting out as an artist. Subjected to alternating darkness and light, a process that disrupts static perception and "changes day into night", a startling sequence of evanescent impressions emerges revealing in a single work two different and unexpected types of images.

Selected Works by Lyne Lapointe reveals states of breakage, fragility and disembodiment grounded in a cherished idea: metamorphosis.

Bio:

Born in Montréal in 1957. Lives and works in Mansonville, Québec. In the early eighties, Lyne Lapointe was one of the most notable artists of her generation with her ground-breaking site-specific works created between 1983 and 1994 in collaboration with artist/critic Martha Fleming. Their projects transformed huge abandoned and half-forgotten buildings in Montreal, New York, London, Madrid and São Paulo, turning them into public works of art traversed by history, narrative, emotion, text, sound and image. Since 1994 Lapointe’s practice has focused on her own work in painting and installation. A survey of her solo production was organized in 2002 by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal which later toured from 2004 to 2006, followed by a number of solo and group exhibitions across Canada and abroad. Among those La Perle in 2007 at the Carleton University art Gallery in Ottawa, La Clef in 2008 at the SBC Gallery of contemporary art in Montréal, Cabinet in 2010 at Sporobole in Sherbrooke and in 2011 at Musée de Joliette. Works by Lyne Lapointe are included in major Canadian public and private collections. Lyne Lapointe is represented by Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain, Montreal and Jack Shainman Gallery, New York.
