Memories We Shouldn’t Speak Of

Solo Exhibition
Action Art Actuel, St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC
2017



For her exhibition Memories We shouldn’t Speak Of, which mainly brings together new works including a collaboration with the artist Cri Sébastien Aubin, Caroline Monnet creates a monochrome installation that deals with important socio-economic and environmental issues related to indigenous peoples. Using industrial materials such as tar as inspiration, the artist explores human and mythological forms that vacillate between destruction and creation, darkness and light, visible and invisible, resulting in a sharp criticism of the colonial and industrial powers that will continue to improperly persecute the First Nations of Canada.
