From May 6 to June 17, 2017

Galerie Trois Points is very pleased to present this collaboration resulting from the encounters of artists Mario Côté and Olivia Mc Gilchrist, during which they both engaged in a «reassembly» of works from their respective photographic and video practices.

A copy of the Refus global manifesto, which transited through the hands of Louise Renaud (québécoise artist attached to the Automatistes movement) in 1948 as she resided in New York, was their point of departure. It is from this hand typed copy on blue translucent parchment paper that the artists extracted sentences, which were corrected and annotated by the hand of Paul-Émile Borduas. This direction mirrors the role of the text, which remains in the process of being written. Reappropriated by Côté and Mc Gilchrist, these sentences are reactualized, pursuing the process of their re-interpretation and possibly highlighting their meaning today.
