Chloé Beaulac, a multidisciplinary artist based out of Montreal, has accepted a residency at Main & Station this August. An exhibition of her work LA NATURE ENTRE NOUS – THE NATURE BETWEEN US will open in the secondfloor gallery at 6pm on August 8th, 2014.
Beaulac puts understanding our role in nature and history at the heart of her artistic pursuit. In the manner of an explorer, she travels a territory letting it infuse her with its history, myths, and personalities. Following these encounters with nature, Beaulac translates them through her screenprints, drawings, paintings, sculptures and multimedia works into symbolic elements that she fragments, recomposes and layers.
Her process of deconstruction and reconstruction is Beaulac’s way of recreating the ephemeral nature of epiphanies. She studies events that have the power to evoke a sense of personal transformation, drawing upon their various spaces, objects and relationships in order to reproduce or capture the essence of their transformative qualities. Through her creations, she meticulously channels the memory of charged events in the interest of creating an accurate representation of the emotions felt during these experiences rather than the fallible images once recorded by memory. Her works are a personal representation of identity, influence and reflection.
