Opening reception: Thursday October 22nd at 5:30 pm


Atelier Circulaire is pleased to present the exhibition “The Scope of Shadows” by Montreal artist Helene Latulippe. Join us Thursday October 22nd from 5:30 pm at Atelier Circulaire Gallery for the opening reception of the exhibition, which will continue until November 20th 2015.


“Through this exhibition, Helene Latulippe lingers on the memory of places. In between the printed lines, she collects the emotional charge stored into the natural and constructed structures, which relays a sort of distorted memory and storytelling.

“In the Pregnance series, the artist uses two languages while approaching materiality. She first created four versions of the same image by overlapping and interchanging its materials. Then, she integrates shadows as a way to reveal hidden secrets in her works. The second piece, Souffle, proposes a series of houses made of transparent paper on which are printed thin lines of black ink. Suspended, they throw delicate silhouettes. Helene Latulippe uses the air movement that makes them oscillate gently to captivate the viewer and evoke sweet reminiscences that disclose secret dances. The artist leaves the viewer free to interpret the works. In doing so, she invites them to explore their own memories”.
