Discover the new exhibit at CCFM’s art gallery

 

The Centre culturel franco-manitobain’s visual arts gallery will welcome a new exhibit from May 24 to August 2, called Perspective Survolée – A Bird’s Eye View, by Françoise Ségard.

Using drawings and encaustic painting (beeswax and pigments), the Montreal artist creates works like imaginary maps, to be observed from all angles to seize its nuances.

At a time where technology enables us to see the Earth from the sky in no time (Google Earth, GPS, drones), what are we really looking at when we observe lands from above? And what do we see when we get closer?

Displayed on the walls and on the floor, A Bird’s Eye View presents a reflection on the different ways we perceive a territory, both as an abstract and living entity at the same time.

 

The opening will take place on Thursday May 24th, at 5 pm in the CCFM’s art gallery, with the artist.

From May 22nd to 25th, as part of this exhibit, there will also be art workshops for kids aged 5 to 12, with the artist.
