Latitude 53


Les Transformables (V)

April 13 - May 26, 2018


Curated by Eric Mattson, Les Transformables (V) takes over all three galleries at Latitude 53 to showcase the work of seven Canadian artists. This is only the second time in the centre’s history that a show of this size has been realized.

In its fifth iteration, Les Transformables brings together artists creating performances based in sound, music or noise. Using built contraptions, circuitry, sound conductors and amplitude pulses, the artists produce and manipulate various soundscapes.

To introduce the exhibition, the artists are performing over the first two days, transforming the gallery into an immersive collection of soundscapes. For many of the participating artists this is their first time collaborating together.

Artists: Steve Bates (Montréal), Diana Burgoyne (Vancouver), Nikki Forrest (Montréal), Anne-F Jacques (Montréal), Ellen Moffat (Saskatoon), Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt (Montréal), and Alexandre St-Onge (Montréal)

With performances by Edmonton guest artists Raylene Campbell, Gary James Jones, and Mark Templeton.

The creation of this work was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
