Jacynthe Carrier
Les Eux 28 aug.— 5 oct. 2013

In her new project entitled Les Eux, the artist examines through the use of video and photography, intimate relationships perceived by several characters in a barren and abandoned landscape, which thus becomes tamed lands. Les Eux evolves into an intimate video where proximity and repetitive movements transport the viewer to the poetic realm of intrusion.
