Nous nous emmêlerons L’Imprimerie Launch

May 18, 17h
L’imprimerie, 3910 rue Sainte-Catherine E.,
Launch of publication Nous nous emmêlerons, Chantier de recherche sur les pratiques de l’imprimé et du photographique

L’imprimerie is pleased to invite you to the launch of the publication nous nous emmêlerons on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at a festive happy hour! This work is the result of the first Chantier, a research project on the printed and photographic image (2018) gathering artists Gwenaël Bélanger, Mathilde Forest, Mathieu Grenier, Céline Huyghebaert, Janie Julien-Fort, Camille Lamy, Stéphanie Nuckle, Eliza Olkinitskaya, Étienne Tremblay-Tardif and artists-curators Caroline Boileau and Stéphane Gilot.
At the end of this collective residency, Céline Huyghebaert and Camille Lamy invited everyone to extend the experience in a book. Common themes had emerged in the studio: disappearance, erasure, negatives, invisibility… The book was built around these ideas, without limiting the theme to a single word. Through the pages, artists offer different images of appearance and disappearance: traces of absence, alterations, broken screens… Special attention is given to the form of the book, to evoke ideas of dissolution: of colors, of the sequence of pages, of images replaced by their textual description; but also blurring names, captions and a certain hierarchy we wrongly believe is needed in order to work collectively.
The publication was directed by Camille Lamy and Céline Huyghebaert. It is composed of images made by the artists, accompanied by texts written by Caroline Boileau, Stéphane Gilot, Camille Lamy and Céline Huyghebaert. It is printed in 150 copies in riso on white, gray and black paper. A print by one of the artists is inserted in each copy of the book.
