February 17 - March 17, 2007
In the last few years, Nathalie Grimard has explored themes relating to dreamlike states and vulnerability. In doing so, she questions our awareness about aging and the passage of time. Her visual constructions comprise of objects and everyday images chosen for their power of recollection.
To pursue the investigation of in-between states of mind, Nathalie Grimard is presenting Vertiges, an exhibition of works on paper whereby the characters she is illustrating are presented either falling or jumping. She is interested in visually articulating how the body is fragile in this suspended state or moment. These images present the viewer an ominous world where danger is imminent. Her work not only references a physical but also a mental descent.

That same year, she participated in the group show Metamorphosis and Cloning at Contemporary Art Museum of Montreal.
