Matter of Place
Each year, the annual undergraduate exhibition aims to represent the diverse art practices and research interests occurring within the Faculty of Fine Arts. Collaborative at its core, this interdisciplinary initiative culminates in an exhibition, publication, and performance event, and combines the efforts of many students, staff, and faculty members. This year’s exhibition title reflects the artists’ engagement with current, personal themes and the artistic materials and processes that bring their artworks into being. Thoughtful and provocative, Matter of Place presents relevant discussions happening in contemporary art and the world in which we live.

Les Exquis
Geneviève Moisan & François Morelli

April 23 to May 25, 2018
Les Exquis
Les Exquis, fantastical characters in black and white, are exquisite corpses that father-and-son duo François and Didier Morelli created together in the 90s using a software called Kid Pix. The project is a unique material rendition of these illustrations, designed and woven in large format by Geneviève Moisan on a computerized Jacquard loom. The works presented are the result of a dialogue between three creators.

What Do Stones Smell Like in the Forest?
Chloë Lum & Yannick Desranleau

April 23 to May 25, 2018
What Do Stones Smell Like in the Forest?
A romance of reclaiming the ill body from the jaws of stillness by merging with the universe of things. Like an ever-growing creature made of unfired clay, new limbs being hastily built-on as others drop off. The ill mind/body is never fully relieved; at best, it manages to forget its ill state through distraction and fantasy.

Chloë Lum and Yannick Deslanreau’s What Do Stones Smell Like in the Forest? is an autofiction, and the second chapter in a series of speculative works reflecting on the affective relationships between sentient bodies and objects.
