Part of Conversations Lyon I Montréal
and following his residency at Moly Sabata in March 2018 Julie Favreau (lives and works in Montreal and Berlin) presents at La BF15 the exhibition From Her Character
invited curators Marthe Carrier and Chloé Grondeau
Initiated by curators Marthe Carrier and Chloé Grondeau, Galerie B-312 (Montreal) proposes Conversations, an exhibition project in which Lyon and Montreal meet to place emphasis on the art scenes in their respective cities; two territories, and most importantly two groups of artists benefiting from significant public recognition. This transatlantic proposal, which involves a plurality of media and a range of artists at different stages of their careers, will take place in two phases, in the spring of 2018 in Lyon and in 2019 in Montreal.
International exposure is an important issue for artists working in contemporary art. Through residencies, exhibitions and site-specific works presented in several locations simultaneously, Conversations offers a great opportunity to take stock of the art-in-the-making on both sides of our borders.
This project, rooted in reciprocity, brings several individuals together, sharing conversations about art. Montreal and Lyon: two territories historically linked by numerous collaborations. Conservations, a proposal to occupy both territories with art.
Julie Favreau’s practice is located at the crossroads of visual art and choreography: research into gesture and movement feeds into the production of sculptural objects and vice versa. Her projects comprise various overlapping forms, such as video, sculpture, performance, and photography. Recent works are open stories, meant to induce a state of heightened sensory awareness in the viewer, inviting concentration, focus, and intimacy.
