Alice Jarry (with Vincent Evrard) presents Lighthouses at centre culturel Henri-Lemieux

January 18–February 17
Vernissage: Thursday, January 18
7644 Edouard, Ville Lassalle

Lighthouses explores the potential of glass in the generation of light and sound signals, unstable and fleeting. The phenomenon of diffraction – approached as a material, spatial and collaborative process (Haraway, 1997; Barad, 2007) – is central to this research.  Thus, the work is actualized according to this principle of “unexpected collisions” between the programming, the space, the time passing by, the movements of light, the fragile materialities, ourselves as artists and the viewers. While the glass squares strike the ground, it produce traces and move small piles of broken glass resulting in unpredictable sounds, material breaks and color patterns which continuously transform the project through time.
