I am happy to announce my participation in Manif d’art 10 – La biennale de Québec. My exhibition 𝑇ℎ𝑒 𝑉𝑎𝑛𝑖𝑠ℎ𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑊𝑜𝑚𝑎𝑛 / 𝐸𝑠𝑐𝑎𝑚𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑔𝑒 𝑑’𝑢𝑛𝑒 𝑓𝑒𝑚𝑚𝑒 will be presented at VU PHOTO from February 19 to March 24, 2022.
Under the theme 𝐼𝑙𝑙𝑢𝑠𝑖𝑜𝑛𝑠 𝐴𝑟𝑒 𝑅𝑒𝑎𝑙, guest curator Steven Matijcio, director of the Blaffer Art Museum in Houston, Texas, will question the relationship between art and its mirages.
The theme of Manif d’art 10 is inspired by Magic Realism, an artistic movement seeking the spontaneous manifestation of seemingly magical, supernatural or irrational elements that arise in the realm of reality. The biennial will be an opportunity to explore artistic practices making use of the trompe-l’oeil, strategies of misdirection and sleight of hand as vehicles.
This reflection on illusions will also reassess many sociopolitical issues steeped in our reality. By defamiliarizing the everyday, the selected artworks will highlight and reveal the illusory mechanisms invading our contemporary world, from artificial flavours to misinformation campaigns.
Manif d’art 10 – La biennale de Québec is produced in collaboration with the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.
Natascha Niederstrass attempts to reconstruct, not without anguish, the precise temporality of a traumatic experience through a graphic wandering. Although memory is porous, signs and codes resurface and are integrated into the narrative structure, allowing an abstract expression of the anxiety-inducing source of the wound suffered. In this work, Niederstrass explores, using her artistic approach developed over several years, the painful impact of trauma. A sensitive and disturbing narrative is put forth through the reconstitution, exclusion, and redistribution of reality and fiction.
