Angela Grauerholz

First Name: Angela

Biography (English): Angela Grauerholz is a German-born Canadian photographer, graphic designer and educator.She came to Canada in 1976 and, with the help of a grant from the Canada Council, completed a MFA degree in photography at Concordia University. During the 1980s, she operated a graphic design studio, working on magazines, catalogues and books. In 1988, she began teaching graphic design at the Université du Québec à Montréal; in 2008, she became director of the Centre of Design there. She was one of the founders of the Artexte Information Centre in 1980. She has digitized much of her own work as well as her personal archive of images from newspapers and other sources. Grauerholz also holds the title of Professor Emerita at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Her photographic work is distinguished by a hazy quality produced using long exposures and overlapping images. Her images of commonplace subjects take on a feeling of timelessness. Grauerholz continued to experiment, later incorporating the use of multiple images and sculpture into her installations. Grauerholz' later work explores themes of unconscious experience and the passage of time. Notable projects, including her series of 16 notable women in the Montreal arts scene shot between 1984 and 1985, often eschew classic formal photographic 'rules' in favour of stylized portraiture. Grauerholz tends to prefer a multi-image series format, as opposed to singular images.

Biography (French): Angela Grauerholz est une photographe, graphiste et éducatrice canadienne d'origine allemande. Elle est arrivée au Canada en 1976 et, grâce à une bourse du Conseil des Arts du Canada, a complété une maîtrise en photographie à l'Université Concordia. Dans les années 1980, elle dirigeait un studio de design graphique, travaillant sur des magazines, des catalogues et des livres. En 1988, elle commence à enseigner le design graphique à l'Université du Québec à Montréal; en 2008, elle y devient directrice du Centre de Design. Elle a été l'une des fondatrices du Centre d'information Artexte en 1980. Elle a numérisé une grande partie de son propre travail ainsi que ses archives personnelles d'images provenant de journaux et d'autres sources. Grauerholz détient également le titre de professeur émérite à l'Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Son travail photographique se distingue par une qualité floue produite par de longues expositions et des images superposées. Ses images de sujets banals acquièrent un sentiment d'intemporalité. Grauerholz a continué à expérimenter, incorporant plus tard l'utilisation de plusieurs images et sculptures dans ses installations. Les travaux ultérieurs de Grauerholz explorent les thèmes de l'expérience inconsciente et du passage du temps. Des projets remarquables, y compris sa série de 16 femmes remarquables de la scène artistique montréalaise, tournées entre 1984 et 1985, évitent souvent les « règles » photographiques formelles classiques en faveur du portrait stylisé. Grauerholz a tendance à préférer un format de séries multi-images, par opposition aux images singulières.

Stéphane Gilot

First Name: Stéphane

Biography (English): Stéphane Gilot's multidisciplinary work combines architectural installations where video and performance play an important role, as well as drawings, watercolors and models. His approach to sculpture is often designed according to the context of presentation and transforms the space taking into account its architectural and ideological aspect, while questioning the metaphorical terrain of art and its audiences. For around fifteen years, this approach has mainly revolved around two series: Escape Plans and Model Worlds. The works in the first series are characterized by a performative installation practice that is interested in various forms of utopia and dystopia, architecture, social structures, cosmology and epistemology. The second series completes the previous one based on the notion of modeling. This critical approach to the contexts of intervention and exhibition also offers a set of experiments on the questions raised by interdisciplinary collaboration protocols. Recent exhibitions include Papvillon, La Comète - 251 Nord, Liège (2019); Collision, an opera for semi-basement, in collaboration with Sara Létourneau and Tim Brady, Le Lobe, Chicoutimi (2018); The catalog of futures presented at the Joliette Art Museum (2016); Piece for five performers, pink light and silence at Espace 221, Pierre-François Ouellette contemporary art (2014) and at the Havana Biennale (2015); MULTIVERSITY/Métacampus at the Galerie de l’UQÀM (2012), Séjour Bistre at L’Œil de Poisson (2011); The Performative City at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (2012) and at Optica (2010); The Blotter of the World at Occurrence (2010); Cineplastic Campus at Blackwood Gallery (2008); The Station at Oboro (2006); and Videogame at Paul Petro Contemporary Art (Toronto, 2005). He has also exhibited as part of Reverse Pedagogy, at the Model Arts and Niland Gallery (Sligo, Ireland, 2009), at the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art during the Triennale Québécoise in 2008 and during the solo Libre arbitr (2001) ; as well as as part of Smile Machine during the Transmediale in Berlin in 2006. Stéphane Gilot holds a master's degree in visual and media arts from the University of Quebec in Montreal (2006). The MULTUVERSITÉ/Métacampus installations, as well as the Cité performative recently acquired by the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, with other works by the artist are the subject of an illustrated book. This publication is the result of a collaboration between the Galerie de l’UQÀM and the MNBAQ.

Biography (French): Le travail multidisciplinaire de Stéphane Gilot combine des installations architecturales où la vidéo et la performance jouent un rôle important, ainsi que des dessins, des aquarelles et des maquettes. Son approche de la sculpture est souvent conçues d’après le contexte de présentation et transforme l’espace en tenant compte de son aspect architectural et idéologique, tout en interrogeant le terrain métaphorique de l’art et de ses publics. Depuis une quinzaine d’année, cette démarche s’articule principalement autour de deux séries : les Plans d’évasion, et les Mondes modèles. Les œuvres de la première série se caractérisent par une pratique de l’installation performative qui s’intéresse aux diverses formes d’utopie et de dystopie, à l’architecture, aux structures sociales, à la cosmologie et à l’épistémologie. La seconde série complète la précédente à partir de la notion de modélisation. Cette approche critique des contextes d’intervention et d’exposition, propose également un ensemble d’expérimentations sur les questions soulevées par les protocoles de collaborations interdisciplinaires. Parmi ses expositions récentes, mentionnons Papvillon, La Comète - 251 Nord, Liège (2019); Collision, un opéra pour demi-sous-sol, en collaboration avec Sara Létourneau et Tim Brady, Le Lobe, Chicoutimi (2018); Le catalogue des futurs présenté au Musée d’art de Joliette (2016); Pièce pour cinq interprètes, lumière rose et silence à l’Espace 221, Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain (2014) et à la Biennale de La Havane (2015); MULTIVERSITÉ/Métacampus à la Galerie de l’UQÀM (2012), Séjour Bistre à L’Œil de poisson (2011); La Cité performative au Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (2012) et à Optica (2010); Le buvard du monde à Occurrence (2010); Cineplastic Campus à la Blackwood Gallery (2008); La Station chez Oboro (2006); et Videogame à la Paul Petro Contemporary Art (Toronto, 2005). Il a également exposé dans le cadre de Reverse Pedagogy, à la Model Arts and Niland Gallery (Sligo, Irlande, 2009), au Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal lors de la Triennale Québécoise en 2008 et lors du solo Libre arbitre (2001); ainsi que dans le cadre de Smile Machine durant la Transmediale de Berlin en 2006.

William Gill

First Name: William

Biography (English): William Gill is a Canadian visual artist known for his wide-ranging works in sculpture, painting, photography, video and installation art. Gill received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1991 from Mount Allison University, where he studied sculpture and printmaking. "Some of Gill's notable works have drawn upon the Newfoundland landscape. In the 2009 performance Cape Spear, he tossed fibreglass-encased glow sticks off of the easternmost point of North America using a catapult." "The 2009 installation Bareneed is a replica of a cast-iron bathtub that Gill saw on the bottom of the ocean floor while sea-kayaking near the titular coastal community (the artist himself has noted that the St. John's setting has been key to his art production)." In March 2013, Gill was selected from a group of 31 artists to create an indoor public art installation in the lobby of a new office building in St. John's, set to open in the spring of 2014 - the first private juried art commission in the province awarded to a local artist. From June to November 2013 he exhibited along with artist Peter Wilkins as part of an official Collateral Project at the 2013 Venice Biennale. Gill was longlisted for the Sobey Art Award, Canada's preeminent contemporary art award, in 2004, 2006, and 2023. After an inspirational journey around the Avalon Peninsula in 1996, Will Gill decided to move to St. John's, Newfoundland, where he was soon offered an opportunity to work as an apprentice at the bronze casting foundry located at the Boreal Sculpture Park and Garden Foundry, run by sculptor Luben Boykov and environmentalist John Evans. "'There was something about the people and place when I came here that seemed just perfect for the way I am, the way I like to live,' he says. 'The temperament of the people, the generosity and so on. And it was that that made me think right away: this is it. I fell in love right away.'"

Biography (French): William Gill est un artiste visuel canadien connu pour ses œuvres variées en sculpture, peinture, photographie, vidéo et installation. Gill a obtenu son baccalauréat en beaux-arts en 1991 à l'Université Mount Allison, où il a étudié la sculpture et la gravure. « Certaines des œuvres remarquables de Gill s'inspirent du paysage terre-neuvien. Dans la performance Cape Spear de 2009, il a lancé des bâtons lumineux enveloppés de fibre de verre depuis le point le plus à l'est de l'Amérique du Nord à l'aide d'une catapulte. » "L'installation Bareneed de 2009 est une réplique d'une baignoire en fonte que Gill a vue au fond de l'océan alors qu'il faisait du kayak de mer près de la communauté côtière titulaire (l'artiste lui-même a noté que le décor de St. John's a été la clé de son production artistique)." En mars 2013, Gill a été sélectionnée parmi un groupe de 31 artistes pour créer une installation d'art public intérieure dans le hall d'entrée d'un nouvel immeuble de bureaux à St. John's, dont l'ouverture est prévue au printemps 2014 - la première commission d'art privée avec jury dans le province décernée à un artiste local. De juin à novembre 2013, il a exposé avec l'artiste Peter Wilkins dans le cadre d'un projet collatéral officiel à la Biennale de Venise 2013. Gill a été sélectionné pour le Sobey Art Award, le prix d'art contemporain le plus prestigieux au Canada, en 2004, 2006 et 2023. Après un voyage inspirant autour de la péninsule d'Avalon en 1996, Will Gill a décidé de déménager à St. John's, à Terre-Neuve, où on lui a rapidement offert l'opportunité de travailler comme apprenti à la fonderie de bronze située au Boreal Sculpture Park and Garden Foundry, dirigé par le sculpteur Luben Boykov et l'écologiste John Evans. "Quand je suis arrivé ici, il y avait quelque chose dans les gens et dans l'endroit qui semblait parfait pour la façon dont je suis, la façon dont j'aime vivre", dit-il. "Le tempérament des gens, la générosité, etc. est-ce que ça m'a tout de suite fait penser : ça y est, je suis tombé amoureux tout de suite.'"

Joan Frick

First Name: Joan

Biography (English): Joan Frick. Frick was a graduate of École des Beaux-Arts de l’Université de Montréal with a Master of Fine Arts, avec Prix, in 1963. Her own words: “Of pertinent and long-standing value to my maturity as an artist are my continued studies in physics, mathematics and astronomy in addition to art, its masters and concepts, and my design experience in architecture and urban planning.” In her artwork, Frick “takes the technological principles of still film photography for a creative alternative ride with her handheld camera drawing lines in its space. Shooting her composition at the same time creating it – as directly as pen-nib to paper – Joan Frick draws her lines with a point of non-static light in the dark, moving her camera at will to form the lines, various in length, colour, angle and sweep that compose her art.”

Biography (French): Jeanne Frick. Frick est diplômé de l’École des Beaux-Arts de l’Université de Montréal avec une maîtrise en beaux-arts, avec Prix, en 1963. Ses propres mots : « Mes études continues en physique, en mathématiques et en astronomie, en plus de l'art, de ses maîtres et de ses concepts, ainsi que mon expérience du design en architecture et en urbanisme, ont une valeur pertinente et de longue date pour ma maturité en tant qu'artiste. » Dans ses œuvres, Frick « reprend les principes technologiques de la photographie argentique pour une balade créative alternative avec son appareil photo portatif dessinant des lignes dans son espace. En prenant sa composition en même temps qu'elle la crée - aussi directement que la plume d'un stylo sur du papier - Joan Frick dessine ses lignes avec un point de lumière non statique dans l'obscurité, déplaçant son appareil photo à volonté pour former des lignes de longueur variable, la couleur, l’angle et le balayage qui composent son art.

Sarindar Dhaliwal

First Name: Sarindar

Biography (English): Sarindar Dhaliwal is a multi-media artist. Dhaliwal's work is narrative-based, exploring issues of cultural identity, and includes installation, printmaking, collage, painting and video projection. Much of Dhaliwal's work deals with memory – specifically childhood memories. Dhaliwal's art tells the story of her life as a global citizen by cleverly exploring the complex relationships between memory and place, language and colour, sport and ritual, family and society, and the histories of colonialism and migration focusing on racism, conflict, and identity. Consequently, Dhaliwal's art is simultaneously personal and universal, defying all attempts at categorization. Dhaliwal's work has been exhibited around Canada since the 1980s. Dhaliwal has exhibited her work at many major Canadian public galleries, including The Edmonton Art Gallery and the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Ontario. She is represented in the Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art. An exhibition of her work, 'Record Keeping', toured Britain in 2004, showing at the John Hansard Gallery (Southampton), Oriel Mostyn Gallery (Wales)and at Canada House Gallery (London). Her work is in collections including Canada Council Art Bank and the Walter Phillips Gallery at The Banff Centre for the Arts. In 2023, Dhaliwal had a solo retrospective, When I grow up I want to be a namer of paint colours, at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Biography (French): Sarindar Dhaliwal est un artiste multimédia. Le travail de Dhaliwal est basé sur la narration et explore les questions d'identité culturelle et comprend l'installation, la gravure, le collage, la peinture et la projection vidéo. Une grande partie du travail de Dhaliwal porte sur la mémoire, en particulier sur les souvenirs d'enfance. L'art de Dhaliwal raconte l'histoire de sa vie de citoyenne du monde en explorant intelligemment les relations complexes entre la mémoire et le lieu, la langue et la couleur, le sport et les rituels, la famille et la société, et les histoires du colonialisme et de la migration en se concentrant sur le racisme, les conflits et l'identité. . Par conséquent, l'art de Dhaliwal est à la fois personnel et universel, défiant toute tentative de catégorisation. Le travail de Dhaliwal est exposé partout au Canada depuis les années 1980. Dhaliwal a exposé son travail dans de nombreuses grandes galeries publiques canadiennes, notamment à la Edmonton Art Gallery et au Agnes Etherington Art Centre, en Ontario. Elle est représentée au Centre d'art contemporain canadien. Une exposition de son travail, « Record Keeping », a fait une tournée en Grande-Bretagne en 2004, à la John Hansard Gallery (Southampton), à la Oriel Mostyn Gallery (Pays de Galles) et à la Canada House Gallery (Londres). Son travail fait partie de collections telles que la Banque d'œuvres d'art du Conseil des Arts du Canada et la Galerie Walter Phillips du Banff Centre for the Arts. En 2023, Dhaliwal a organisé une rétrospective personnelle, Quand je serai grand, je veux être un créateur de couleurs de peinture, au Art Gallery of Ontario.

Shawna Dempsey & Lorri Millan

First Name: Shawna Dempsey

Biography (English): Winnipeg, Manitoba Collaborators since 1989, Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan are among Canada’s best-known performance artists. They were catapulted into the international spotlight in their 20s with the performance and film We’re Talking Vulva. Since then, their live work and videos have been exhibited in diverse venues as far-ranging as women's centres in Sri Lanka to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. This Winnipeg-based duo has created installations (such as Archaeology and You for the Royal Ontario Museum), public art pieces (such as One Gay City, the subject of a Manitoba Human Rights Commission challenge) and books (such as Bedtime Stories for the Edge of the World, Arbeiter Ring Press). To most, however, they are known simply as the Lesbian Rangers of Lesbian National Parks and Services. Their humourous, feminist and provocative work has been acclaimed as “one of the high-points of contemporary Canadian artistic production” (Border Crossings Magazine). Performance documentation and artifacts are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Canadian Museum of History and the Dia Art Foundation, among others. They have also curated for institutions including the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Hallwalls Contemporary Art Centre and YYZ. Dempsey and Millan are the recipients of many awards, most proudly the Canadian Museums Association Award for Outstanding Publication and the Manitoba Arts Council Special Prize for Innovation and Excellence. The CCCA Winnipeg Artists Project was generously supported by the Winnipeg Foundation.

Christine Davis

First Name: Christine

Biography (English): Christine Davis is a Canadian artist from Vancouver. She currently lives and works in New York. She grew up in Prince George, Ann Arbor, Lusaka and Toronto. After graduating from York University (Toronto), she attended the Collège International de Philosophie in Paris. She has served on the board of directors of The Power Plant (Toronto) and YYZ Artists' Outlet (Toronto). As a founding editor of the interdisciplinary journal Public: Art/Culture/Ideas, her editorial work intersects with the research driving her practice. Moving fluidly between film, photography, drawing, sculpture and video, her work often incorporates archival material to arrive at a prismatic view of the present and address core issues of our time. Her time-based work with slide dissolve is often described as haptic; enfolding screen, viewing space and projection apparatus within the sensory experience. Exploration of the image support is uniquely addressed in her work with sculptural screens constructed of butterflies, buttons, flowers, lead and upholstery. Davis' installations seem to propose that meanings from disparate historical and pedagogical contexts overlap and are released slowly over long periods of time.

Biography (French): Christine Davis est une artiste canadienne de Vancouver. Elle vit et travaille actuellement à New York. Elle a grandi à Prince George, Ann Arbor, Lusaka et Toronto. Après avoir obtenu son diplôme de l'Université York (Toronto), elle a fréquenté le Collège International de Philosophie à Paris. Elle a siégé au conseil d'administration de The Power Plant (Toronto) et de YYZ Artists' Outlet (Toronto). En tant que rédactrice fondatrice de la revue interdisciplinaire Public: Art/Culture/Ideas, son travail éditorial recoupe les recherches qui animent sa pratique. Se déplaçant avec fluidité entre le film, la photographie, le dessin, la sculpture et la vidéo, son travail intègre souvent des matériaux d'archives pour parvenir à une vision prismatique du présent et aborder les questions centrales de notre époque. Son travail temporel avec fondu enchaîné est souvent décrit comme haptique ; écran enveloppant, espace de visualisation et appareil de projection au sein de l’expérience sensorielle. L'exploration du support de l'image est abordée de manière unique dans son travail avec des paravents sculpturaux constitués de papillons, de boutons, de fleurs, de plomb et de tissus d'ameublement. Les installations de Davis semblent proposer que les significations issues de contextes historiques et pédagogiques disparates se chevauchent et se libèrent lentement sur de longues périodes de temps.

Sylvain Cousineau

First Name: Sylvain

Biography (English): ​Sylvain Cousineau exhibited his work regularly since the mid seventies. The most familiar objects, if presented in a particular way and examined with fresh eyes, often seem to possess an altered significance, to be charged with new meaning. This simple fact, which reflects the dynamics inherent to all creative endeavour, takes on a singular force and heightened relief in the work of Sylvain P. Cousineau. This artistic practice evolving steadily over a period of more than forty years, is rich and varied (photographs, paintings, assemblages), and expressed in a tone and spirit of remarkable consistency. Cousineau’s essentially figurative painting focused initially on four apparently innocuous themes or motifs – a ship, a vase of flowers, a teapot and a birthday cake – that the artist reworked over the years from different perspectives and according to different moods. The use of certain formal devices, also recurrent and frequently highly connotative (drips, brushstrokes, dots of colour), imbues the work with a powerfully reflective dimension, while also endowing it with a marked emotional charge. In an approach that is both profound and playful, and in a tone marked by certain humour, Cousineau’s explorations centre primarily on the actual creation of art and, its relations with the world. Broad and all-encompassing, this approach nevertheless avoids orthodoxy and the rigid self-referentiality that modernity has sometimes imposed on the work of art (art about art). Although easily recognizable and accessible to all, the ideas and objects represented in Cousineau’s painting nevertheless carry multiple meanings. We need only think, for example, of the four elements (water, fire, earth and air) – considered in ancient times as the basic components of all things… For instance, all the objects serve as the container of source of another body: smoke comes out of the ship’s funnel; gifts emerge from the birthday cake; flowers seem to burst forth from the vase; and steam escapes from the spout of the teapot. These images, which evoke the idea of transformation, are not unrelated to that other phenomenon of transformation ( of an object or a viewpoint) that constitutes artistic creation; they thus play a metaphorical role in relation to the conditions and concerns of this practice.

Biography (French): ​Sylvain Cousineau expose régulièrement son travail depuis le milieu des années soixante-dix. Les objets les plus familiers, s'ils sont présentés d'une manière particulière et examinés avec un regard neuf, semblent souvent posséder une signification altérée, être chargés d'une signification nouvelle. Ce simple fait, qui reflète la dynamique inhérente à toute démarche créatrice, prend une force singulière et un relief accru dans l'œuvre de Sylvain P. Cousineau. Cette pratique artistique, en constante évolution depuis plus de quarante ans, est riche et variée (photographies, peintures, assemblages), et s'exprime dans un ton et un esprit d'une remarquable cohérence. La peinture essentiellement figurative de Cousineau s’articule initialement autour de quatre thèmes ou motifs en apparence anodins – un navire, un vase de fleurs, une théière et un gâteau d’anniversaire – que l’artiste retravaille au fil des années sous différents angles et selon différentes humeurs. L'utilisation de certains dispositifs formels, également récurrents et souvent très connotatifs (gouttes, coups de pinceau, points de couleur), confère à l'œuvre une dimension puissamment réflexive, tout en lui conférant une charge émotionnelle marquée. Dans une approche à la fois profonde et ludique, et sur un ton empreint d’un certain humour, les explorations de Cousineau portent principalement sur la création artistique elle-même et ses relations avec le monde. Large et globale, cette approche évite néanmoins l’orthodoxie et l’autoréférentialité rigide que la modernité a parfois imposée à l’œuvre d’art (l’art sur l’art). Bien que facilement reconnaissables et accessibles à tous, les idées et les objets représentés dans la peinture de Cousineau portent néanmoins de multiples significations. Il suffit de penser, par exemple, aux quatre éléments (eau, feu, terre et air) – considérés dans l’Antiquité comme les composants de base de toutes choses… Par exemple, tous les objets servent de contenant de source à un autre corps : de la fumée sort de la cheminée du navire ; des cadeaux sortent du gâteau d’anniversaire ; des fleurs semblent jaillir du vase ; et de la vapeur s'échappe du bec de la théière. Ces images, qui évoquent l'idée de transformation, ne sont pas étrangères à cet autre phénomène de transformation (d'un objet ou d'un point de vue) que constitue la création artistique ; ils jouent ainsi un rôle métaphorique par rapport aux conditions et aux préoccupations de cette pratique.

Robin Collyer

First Name: Robin

Biography (English): Robin Collyer immigrated to Canada in 1957. He attended the Ontario College of Art, Toronto, in the late 1960s, and presented his first solo exhibition at the Carmen Lamanna Gallery in 1971. Collyer's early black and white photographs, such as Shirley and Clint Eastwood, 1973, looked critically at the limits of the photographic image and its claims to authenticity. This questioning of what we are looking at and what it depicts continues to be a central element of his photo works. His early sculpture shows the influence of minimalism in its geometric design, abstraction and unadorned materials, but with the addition of narrative elements. By the mid-1980s, Collyer had moved further away from his early minimalism to include photography, found imagery and text on the surfaces of his sculptures. Constructed from elements and materials that retain some of their original associations, these discrete objects preserve an open-ended narrative and function as contemporary metaphors. The influence of photography is always present in his sculptures, as in Vacuum Cleaner Building (after Walker Evans), 1993, which reproduces an architectural structure from a 1936 Evans photograph. Photography, and in particular, digital imagery, has become part of both Collyer's sculptures and public works. Surfaces of objects have been covered with photographs (Round Ceiling Diffuser, 2000). A large public commission for the Canadian Embassy in Berlin uses a nature-based image integrated into the existing architecture (Canopy, 2005). Photographs and media images have been the starting point for three-dimensional constructions like Kennel, 2002 and Cell Door, 2005. Internet image searches form the basis for works such as Most Violent Places, 2005, and works in progress utilize digital tools to convert photographic images into 3-dimensional forms. Robin Collyer has exhibited his sculpture and photography across Canada and the United States, and in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, England and France. In 1987 he exhibited at Documenta 8 in Kassel, Germany, and in 1993 his work represented Canada at the Venice Biennale. In 1999, an exhibition of Collyer's photographs was organized by the Art Gallery of York University, which then travelled to the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography and the Centre photographique d'Ile-de-France in Pontault-Combault, France. In 2012, Le point du Jour, in Cherbourg, France exhibited a large survey exhibition of his photographic work and sculpture.

Biography (French): Robin Collyer a immigré au Canada en 1957. Il a fréquenté l'Ontario College of Art de Toronto à la fin des années 1960 et a présenté sa première exposition personnelle à la galerie Carmen Lamanna en 1971. Les premières photographies en noir et blanc de Collyer, comme Shirley et Clint Eastwood, 1973, portaient un regard critique sur les limites de l'image photographique et ses prétentions à l'authenticité. Cette remise en question de ce que l'on regarde et de ce qu'il représente continue d'être un élément central de ses travaux photographiques. Ses premières sculptures montrent l'influence du minimalisme dans sa conception géométrique, son abstraction et ses matériaux sans fioritures, mais avec l'ajout d'éléments narratifs. Au milieu des années 1980, Collyer s'était éloigné de son minimalisme initial pour inclure la photographie, des images et des textes trouvés sur la surface de ses sculptures. Construits à partir d'éléments et de matériaux qui conservent certaines de leurs associations originales, ces objets discrets préservent un récit ouvert et fonctionnent comme des métaphores contemporaines. L'influence de la photographie est toujours présente dans ses sculptures, comme dans Vacuum Cleaner Building (d'après Walker Evans), 1993, qui reproduit une structure architecturale d'après une photographie d'Evans de 1936. La photographie, et en particulier l'imagerie numérique, fait désormais partie des sculptures et des œuvres publiques de Collyer. Les surfaces des objets ont été recouvertes de photographies (Round Ceiling Diffuser, 2000). Une grande commande publique pour l'ambassade du Canada à Berlin utilise une image basée sur la nature intégrée à l'architecture existante (Canopy, 2005). Les photographies et les images médiatiques ont été le point de départ de constructions tridimensionnelles comme Kennel, 2002 et Cell Door, 2005. Les recherches d'images sur Internet constituent la base d'œuvres telles que Most Violent Places, 2005, et les travaux en cours utilisent des outils numériques pour convertir des images photographiques. images en formes tridimensionnelles. Robin Collyer a exposé ses sculptures et ses photographies partout au Canada et aux États-Unis, ainsi qu'en Allemagne, en Autriche, en Suisse, en Angleterre et en France. En 1987, il expose à la Documenta 8 à Kassel, en Allemagne, et en 1993, son travail représente le Canada à la Biennale de Venise. En 1999, une exposition des photographies de Collyer a été organisée par la Galerie d'art de l'Université York, qui a ensuite voyagé au Musée canadien de la photographie contemporaine et au Centre photographique d'Île-de-France à Pontault-Combault, en France. En 2012, Le point du Jour, à Cherbourg, en France, a présenté une grande exposition d'enquête de son travail photographique et de sa sculpture.

Sorel Cohen

First Name: Sorel

Biography (English): Sorel Cohen is a Canadian photographer and visual artist. Cohen pursued post-secondary education in Montreal, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University in 1974, as well as a Masters of Fine Arts in 1979. Her Masters thesis examined feminist influences on art in the 1970s, and her work has continued to be shaped by her feminist values. Sorel Cohen has worked extensively with portraiture, both behind and in front of the camera. The majority of her work has a focus on both autobiographical works as well as feminist works. In the 1970s, Cohen began experimenting by combining photography with performance art, which was a relatively new idea at the time and soon became known for this. Cohen often combines the use of this performance art with a slow shutter speed, creating a blurred aesthetic. By displaying these photographs in a series, the viewer feels a sense of time passing through them. Cohen draws inspiration from all forms of art, from painting to sculpture, to performance in her photographic work. Although Cohen's work comes from personal experience, she gives her photographs a quality that allows for interpretation, giving them an almost universal meaning. Cohen has produced an extensive collection of work that comes from a perspective of psychoanalysis. Sorel Cohen has had her work exhibited both nationally and internationally over the past three decades. Her work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions.

Dans les années 1970, Cohen a commencé à expérimenter en combinant la photographie avec l’art de la performance, une idée relativement nouvelle à l’époque et qui s’est rapidement fait connaître. Cohen combine souvent l'utilisation de cet art de la performance avec une vitesse d'obturation lente, créant une esthétique floue. En affichant ces photographies en série, le spectateur ressent la sensation du temps qui les traverse. Cohen s'inspire de toutes les formes d'art, de la peinture à la sculpture, en passant par la performance dans son travail photographique. Bien que le travail de Cohen soit issu d'une expérience personnelle, elle confère à ses photographies une qualité qui permet l'interprétation, leur donnant une signification presque universelle. Cohen a produit une vaste collection de travaux qui s’inscrivent dans une perspective de psychanalyse. Sorel Cohen a vu son travail exposé à l'échelle nationale et internationale au cours des trois dernières décennies. Son travail a été présenté dans des expositions individuelles et collectives.

Roland Brener

First Name: Roland

Biography (English): Roland Brener RCA was a South African-born Canadian artist. He completed his academic training in 1965, and in 1967, Brener was one of the founders of the Stockwell Depot, a studio and exhibition space occupying part of a disused brewery in south London. Brener taught at Saint Martin's School of Art, at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and at the University of Iowa before being appointed Associate Professor at the University of Victoria in 1974. He retired from teaching in 1997. Brener's early practice grew from the formalist innovations of his contemporaries at Saint Martin's. During the 1980s his work developed a more playful individuality as he began to incorporate consumer items, most often toys, and experiment with kinetic sculpture driven by electronic motors or computers. In his later work he began to use the computer as a design tool to produce fantastical distortions of everyday images and objects which were then fabricated in wood or synthetic materials. Brener's work is represented in most of the major public collections in Canada, including Toronto's Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada.

Biography (French): Roland Brener RCA était un artiste canadien né en Afrique du Sud. Il termine sa formation universitaire en 1965 et, en 1967, Brener est l'un des fondateurs du Stockwell Depot, un studio et un espace d'exposition occupant une partie d'une brasserie désaffectée du sud de Londres. Brener a enseigné à la Saint Martin's School of Art, à l'Université de Californie à Santa Barbara et à l'Université de l'Iowa avant d'être nommé professeur agrégé à l'Université de Victoria en 1974. Il a pris sa retraite de l'enseignement en 1997. Les premières pratiques de Brener sont issues des innovations formalistes de ses contemporains de Saint Martin. Au cours des années 1980, son travail a développé une individualité plus ludique alors qu'il commençait à incorporer des objets de consommation, le plus souvent des jouets, et à expérimenter la sculpture cinétique entraînée par des moteurs électroniques ou des ordinateurs. Dans ses travaux ultérieurs, il a commencé à utiliser l'ordinateur comme outil de conception pour produire des distorsions fantastiques d'images et d'objets du quotidien qui étaient ensuite fabriqués en bois ou en matériaux synthétiques. Le travail de Brener est représenté dans la plupart des principales collections publiques du Canada, notamment la Art Gallery of Ontario de Toronto et le Musée des beaux-arts du Canada.

Dick Averns

First Name: Dick

Biography (English): Dick Averns' practice investigates the commodification of space. Language, media convergence and identity politics – major arbiters of spatial control – are explored via sculpture, performativity, text-based works and photography. Pyscho-geography and performance ethnography feature as regular approaches to executing projects, often manifested as public art. As a cross-departmental faculty member at the Alberta College of Art & Design, teaching between liberal studies and studio, Averns has established new curricula for undergraduate programs in sculpture, performance and installation. Complementing his art production, Averns is both a critical and scholarly writer. Mental spaces are addressed on conflicted fronts: the overt and covert. In terms of overt conflict Averns writes on contemporary war art and has presented public lectures, chaired academic conference panels and published articles on this topic. Covert conflict is probed via applied research into mental health disorders. This has included the role of principal investigator for an interdisciplinary project investigating mental health, career choice and achievement in the workplace. Specifically, this work investigates how challenges associated with Tourette Syndrome may be channeled into positive career characteristics. Averns is also a professional panel chair and conference moderator. Dick is represented by the Bjornson Kajiwara Gallery, Vancouver.

En tant que membre du corps professoral interdépartemental de l'Alberta College of Art & Design, enseignant entre les études libérales et le studio, Averns a établi de nouveaux programmes pour les programmes de premier cycle en sculpture, performance et installation. En complément de sa production artistique, Averns est à la fois un écrivain critique et érudit. Les espaces mentaux sont abordés sur des fronts conflictuels : le manifeste et le secret. En ce qui concerne les conflits manifestes, Averns écrit sur l'art de guerre contemporain et a présenté des conférences publiques, présidé des panels de conférences universitaires et publié des articles sur ce sujet. Les conflits secrets sont étudiés via la recherche appliquée sur les troubles de santé mentale. Cela inclut le rôle de chercheur principal pour un projet interdisciplinaire portant sur la santé mentale, le choix de carrière et la réussite en milieu de travail. Plus précisément, ce travail étudie comment les défis associés au syndrome de Tourette peuvent être canalisés vers des caractéristiques de carrière positives. Averns est également président de panel professionnel et modérateur de conférence. Dick est représenté par la galerie Bjornson Kajiwara, à Vancouver.

Gisele Amantea

First Name: Gisele

Biography (English): Gisele Amantea lives in Montreal where she taught in the Studio Arts program at Concordia University from 1995 to 2012. Amantea's work is known for its interdisciplinary focus and innovative use of a variety of materials, formats and processes to explore questions related to gender, class, nostalgia, history, memory and the relationship of private and public space. Media in which she has made work ranges from sculpture, drawing, wallpaper and textiles to video and bookworks. At the same time, her practice has had a strong research base in the sense that work is often made in response to, provoked or generated by a specific context or place, and depends, to some extent, on research undertaken in these locations. This includes making on-site observations, visiting official repositories of history such as archives, museums and libraries and unofficial and vernacular collections such as those found in junk stores, popular media locations and private residences.

Biography (French): Gisèle Amantea vit à Montréal où elle a enseigné au programme Studio Arts de l'Université Concordia de 1995 à 2012.

Les médias dans lesquels elle a travaillé vont de la sculpture, du dessin, du papier peint et des textiles à la vidéo et aux livres. Dans le même temps, sa pratique repose sur une solide base de recherche dans le sens où le travail est souvent réalisé en réponse, provoqué ou généré par un contexte ou un lieu spécifique, et dépend, dans une certaine mesure, des recherches entreprises dans ces lieux. Cela implique de faire des observations sur place, de visiter des dépôts historiques officiels tels que des archives, des musées et des bibliothèques, ainsi que des collections non officielles et vernaculaires telles que celles trouvées dans des brocantes, des lieux médiatiques populaires et des résidences privées.

John Abrams

First Name: John

Biography (English): Especially pertinent to John Abrams' overall program of work is the strategy of using existing cultural objects – film, art, and narratives – that already have systems of signs and signifiers, existing languages. These languages or codes can then be applied – like the artist’s palette of colours – to reconstruct, remake or alter the dynamic of the conversation. This approach allows the artist a chance to communicate to viewers in a common vocabulary and offers a point of entry into the ongoing dialogues that make up contemporary culture. Some of Abrams' wildlife paintings can be found in the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, the Agnes Etherington in Kingston or the Art Museum at the University of Toronto.

Biography (French): La stratégie consistant à utiliser des objets culturels existants – films, art et récits – qui possèdent déjà des systèmes de signes et de signifiants, des langages existants, est particulièrement pertinente pour le programme de travail global de John Abrams. Ces langages ou codes peuvent ensuite être appliqués – comme la palette de couleurs de l’artiste – pour reconstruire, refaire ou modifier la dynamique de la conversation. Cette approche permet à l'artiste de communiquer avec les spectateurs dans un vocabulaire commun et offre un point d'entrée dans les dialogues continus qui composent la culture contemporaine. Certaines des peintures animalières d'Abrams se trouvent au Musée des beaux-arts du Canada à Ottawa, à Agnes Etherington à Kingston ou au Musée d'art de l'Université de Toronto.

Randy & Berenicci

First Name: Randy

Biography (English): Randy & Berenicci is an oeuvre spanning more than 30 years, created a unique and evolving body of site-specific and time based art (performance, installation, video, public sculpture). They produced and presented their collaborative work internationally with an extensive history of recognition in art venues around the world. Working in the era of analogue video, they pushed the limits of the medium creating densely architected landscapes through an alchemy of pre-recorded video installations, front and rear projections, miniatures and mechanical effects. They are pioneers of a style of work that combines sensitive and playful reference to site with visionary metaphors infused with historical and cultural references. Poetic and multi-layered, their art is unexpected, surprising and always engaging. Randy Gledhill (b. Winnipeg 1951) currently lives and works in Vancouver. Berenicci Hershorn (b. Toronto 1945) currently lives and works in Toronto.

Biography (French): Randy & Berenicci, c'est une œuvre s'étalant sur plus de 30 ans, créant un corpus unique et évolutif d'art in situ et basé sur le temps (performance, installation, vidéo, sculpture publique). Ils ont produit et présenté leur travail collaboratif à l’échelle internationale avec une longue histoire de reconnaissance dans les lieux d’art du monde entier. Travaillant à l’ère de la vidéo analogique, ils ont repoussé les limites du médium en créant des paysages densément architecturés grâce à une alchimie d’installations vidéo préenregistrées, de projections avant et arrière, de miniatures et d’effets mécaniques. Ils sont les pionniers d'un style de travail qui combine une référence sensible et ludique au site avec des métaphores visionnaires imprégnées de références historiques et culturelles. Poétique et multidimensionnel, leur art est inattendu, surprenant et toujours engageant. Randy Gledhill (né à Winnipeg, 1951) vit et travaille actuellement à Vancouver. Berenicci Hershorn (née à Toronto en 1945) vit et travaille actuellement à Toronto.
