Françoise Ségard – Perspective survolée // A bird’s eye view

May 24 to August 2

 

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.
