This exhibition is devoted to paintings by Françoise Sullivan. Although it covers 35 years of an abundant pictorial production, the exhibition sheds a special light on works produced in the past five years.  A few works from the artist’s mythical series such as Tondos and Hommages, will forego the passive role and act as the guides that they are within her current production.  Certain paintings from Proportio, her most recent series, have never been shown, while the works from Jeux, the previous series, have been reassembled from a number of private collections.

This is not a retrospective of this worthy exponent of the Automatist approach.  The challenge endures to produce paintings that owe no dependence and that stand solely on their own internal strength, because, in the end, painting is, above all else, immanence, presence, aura.

A striking transcription of a city through its geographical, historical and identity symbols.  Using urban related objects as a starting point, the artist creates art works-installations which question the way city-dwellers relate with their environment both material and human.

Comment l’artiste peut-il rendre perceptible sa présence? Comment nous fait-il sentir les actions et les mouvements de son corps? À partir d’une sélection des œuvres de sa collection, le MAC de Baie-Saint-Paul propose une réflexion sur la façon dont l’artiste inscrit sa présence sur une œuvre d’art. Que ce soit par le biais de la gestualité, de l’engagement de son corps dans la matière ou à travers des propositions mettant en scène la dualité entre présence et absence, les œuvres de l’exposition portent à réfléchir sur les traces tangibles du corps et leur valeur symbolique.
