A lighthouse calling to mind a Tower of Babel, a one-eyed drill, and a clandestine grocery basket are some of the figures imagined by Clément de Gaulejac in his visual and sound installation created especially for young audiences aged 8 to 12.
Lapincyclope is different. He has only one eye and would like to jump into his rabbit hole without chipping his teeth… He meets a worm that has no eyes but can navigate through holes in the ground! Together they will discover the power of imagination and the inner workings of sight: a little with the eyes, a lot with the brain, always with the heart.
Room 901 is a vast undertaking that led Irene F. Whittome to work in her studio for two consecutive years, creating a work and systematically documenting its production. Thirty years later, Room 901 is the subject of a reflection on the modalities for re-enactment of a site-specific intervention, and provides the opportunity to examine the variable status of a work, its documentation and its exhibitions.

This retrospective exhibition draws parallels between
Jean-Marie Delavalle’s 1970-1975 conceptual experimentations and recent works. Along with archival materials, they demonstrate the artist’s interest in exploring the specific qualities of colour, the effects of serial representation, and perceptual phenomena, all of which characterize Delavalle’s practice since the early days.
Space Fiction & the Archives is a time portal that transports us to the small town of St. Paul, Alberta, in 1967 where the world’s first “UFO Landing Pad” was built. Declared a “symbol of Western hospitality” the structure is examined within the context of 1967, a year of significant change in immigration regulations in Canada.
