Galerie Hugues Charbonneau opens the summer season with a group exhibition bringing together the work of gallery artists, Trevor Gould, Jean-Benoit Pouliot and Julie Trudel, as well as invited artists Maryse Goudreau and Lucie Robert. The works exhibited in Écrans all explore the concept of ‘the screen,’whether it be through pictoral, historical, physical or political means.

Screens provide a paradox – they are simultaneously capable of being both revealing and concealing. This duality which constructs and conditions our gaze, expresses the inevitable incompleteness of the images that surround us as they evoke what is left out and what underwrites them. The screen then becomes an aesthetic, political and philosophical device, that allows us to analyze and understand the world we live in. It mobilizes ideas around interpretation or fractured narratives as it nourishes a broader understanding of our relationship with the immaterial, the fleeting.

A conduit for art straddling material and media, the screen can be understood as a physical or abstract support, but can also be seen as a historical and cultural construction, as a body-image norm-establishing weapon, as iconographic and conceptual foliation…Finally, the idea of the screen refers to a whole archeology of images and to a history of ideas.
