Jacynthe Carrier and Jon Rafman open exhibitions at galerie antoine ertaskiran
Jon Rafman, Remember Carthage, HD video, 2013.

MONTREAL.- From august 28 to october 5, Jacynthe Carrier will present her first solo exhibition at galerie antoine ertaskiran. in her new project entitled Les Eux, the artist examines through the use of video and photography, intimate relationships perceived by several characters in a barren and abandoned landscape, which thus becomes tamed. Les Eux evolves into an intimate video where proximity and repetitive movements transport the viewer to a realm of poetic intrusion.

Jacynthe Carrier is the recipient of the Prix Pierre-Ayot 2012, awarded by the City of Montreal. This project is supported by the City of Montreal.

Born in Lévis (Québec), Jacynthe Carrier lives and works in Québec and Montreal. Carrier obtained her Master’s degree in fine arts at Concordia University. her work has been presented in several solo and group shows in Canada (La Triennale Québécoise 2011, La Manifestation d’art de Québec 2008, Le musée régional de Rimouski, Le Centre de la photographie VU, La galerie de l’UQAM), France, Brasil and USA. Her previous project Parcours will be part of 2 exhibitions in France in 2013 (at the Cultural Canadian Centre in Paris and at Le Fresnoy as part of an exhibition curated by Louise Déry). Jacynthe Carrier will be an Artist-in residence at Residency Unlimited in Brooklyn in 2013.

Galerie antoine ertaskiran will make use of a new space adjacent to the main exhibition room to present Remember Carthage, a video by Jon Rafman. in Remember Carthage, the artist (in collaboration with Rosa Aiello) explores the relationship between memory and identity, both historical and personal. Sourcing footage from video games and Second Life, this video takes the viewer on a journey in search of an abandoned resort hotel deep in the Sahara. moving seamlessly between actual, virtual, and imaginary space, the work underscores the difficulty of constructing a continuous narrative in a present increasingly bereft of meaning. while using technological tools themselves to show how they can estrange us from history, this film blurs the line between genuine and reproduced, physical and virtual, remains of the past. Remember Carthage highlights the impact of a post-internet world on notions of loss, decay, and nostalgia.

This exhibition takes place in conjunction with Jon Rafman's participation to Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal.
