Dark Souls, 2009
Dark Souls was exhibited at the Musee d'art contemporain de Montreal from October 10th 2009 until January 3rd 2010. There was a catalogue produced for this exhibition which can be purchased here. Curator: Sandra Grant Marchand, photos: Guy L'Heureux
Extrapolating its title from Nikolai Gogol's novel, Dead Souls, this work investigates the processes of becoming through one's relationships to material and its inevitable decline. This work develops elliptical narratives and multi-layered scenes by creating equivalencies and correspondences between both these states (becoming/decline), emblematic of synthetic and natural phenomena alike.
