“Territorial Re-Marks” will feature works by Front Room artists Emily Roz and Patricia Smith in conjunction with Articule artists Jérôme Havre, Michelle Lacombe.
excerpt from Épidémie culturelle, by Jerome Delgado in Le Devoir:
“With four artists Articule offers a real group show, unlike most other places that have opted for a collage of solos. The territory invested here touches the theme of colonization, with the work of weaving and melting pot of Jérôme Havre welcomes visitors. Plans and drawings Patricia Smith, arranged on two large tables, address the following urban development in a personal way, with retouching ink or watercolor. These two bodies, the foundations politicized, but tenuous, resulting in works and precious little literal.
The other two projects, more intertwined in the bottom of the gallery, are diametrically opposed to one another. Emily Roz’s paintings are full of details and exotic patterns, while interventions on the wall of Michelle Lacombe, simple horizontal lines at the mine, are conspicuous by their discretion. The six gouaches and oils and the first two Literary Landscape Drawing the second win in this approximation, however, unusual.
In his descriptions of places and lush scenes of great violence, Emily Roz juxtaposes different universe. Behind this view of nature where the hyena, or any other predator, has a central role, the artist paints a bleak picture of humanity. The land use is a matter of survival, and sometimes in the beautiful colors of a painting as Vulture Claw (the claws of the vulture), hiding truths more difficult to perceive, accept.”

This exhibition brings together over 60 artists using a wide range of techniques and imagery within the field of drawing, painting, collage and sculpture to create a singular artistic vision. BLACK FOLIAGE takes its name from the contemporary psych rock band Olivia Tremor Control’s 1999 album Black Foliage: Animation Music Vol. One. Like the album, this exhibition combines pop and experimental aesthetics into something eccentric and cohesive.
The combined efforts from these artists will create something akin to a psychedelic zen garden.
