Mer paraguayenne / Paraguayan Sea
Andrew Forster & Erín Moure

August 21 to December 8, 2017
Mer paraguayenne / Paraguayan Sea
Mer paraguayenne/Paraguayan Sea is a text intervention into public space by Montreal visual artist Andrew Forster in collaboration with the Montreal poet Erín Moure. Installed outdoors, the wide yellow band wraps around the ground floor of Concordia University’s EV (Engineering and Visual Arts) Building, facing Ste-Catherine Street and McKay Street in downtown Montreal. This graphic and typographic artwork relays Moure’s poetic text, and moves between three languages (French, English and Guaraní) to create one meaning—an amalgam of language and meaning reflective of the creative ‘mix’ that is Montreal's urban hybridity.

the distance between our outreached arms (deadflag)
Jerry Ropson

October 30 to December 8, 2017
the distance between our outreached arms (deadflag)
Flags and the act of flagging have been a common motif in Jerry Ropson’s work for many years. In subverting its use, Ropson incites an iconoclastic representation of the flag. Using adhesive sign vinyl, paper, ink and twine, the artist will work in the York Corridor vitrine space over several days, maintaining an open dialogue with the public. On-site fabrications will be supplemented by drawing, canvas flags, felt banners, sculptural elements, and found materials.

Digital Erratics
Elisabeth Belliveau & Tim Belliveau

October 30 to December 8, 2017
Digital Erratics
DIGITAL
: using or characterized by computer technology
: done with a finger

ERRATIC
: acting, moving or changing in ways that are not expected or usual: not consistent or regular.

Digital Erratics is an investigation into animated spaces and materialized transformations. Both artists explore histories of sculpture and the moving image in dialogue with digital tools exploring form through space and time in what they are calling the Digital Erratic.

Where does sound go, where does it come from
Sandra Volny

October 30 to December 8, 2017
Where does sound go, where does it come from
Where does sound go, where does it come from explores the distance and tension inherent in the intersection of sound and sight, of seeing what cannot be seen and only heard. Sandra Volny's video installation flips back and forth between seeing/hearing and listening/visualizing, relying on the white noise of the ocean as an auditory space for narratives of individual and collective imagination to emerge.
