Laurent Pernel
From October 1st 2011 to December 31st 2011
Résidence de recherche jeune création (Montréal)

Laurent Pernel (Lyon) deploys his work in public space like a perpetual construction site: his polymorphic pieces—tiny devices of his own making, monumental constructions, burlesque athletic actions—interact with the urban landscape, subverting its meaning and perception. Once an architecture student, the artist declares that he has been “liberated from the overly rigorous technical constraints of construction by working with simple materials.” Based on contextual observations of the host location—the particularities and formal or historical incongruities of each urban area—, he attempts to bring disparate elements into a consistent reading, which he interconnects with other spaces or with his personal background. In collaboration with art3 (Valence, France), OPTICA is proud to welcome Laurent Pernel in Montreal from October 1rst to December 31rst, 2011!

In this public presentation, the artist focused on the research and video work he did in Montreal; he also unveiled three bookets that were entirely produced during his stay. Please note this event was combined with the launch of the publication Résidence de recherche jeune création : Anne-Lise Seusse, Olivia Boudreau, a copiously illustrated diary (co)produced with art3 (Valence) that benefited from the support of the Ministère des Relations internationales du Québec, Région Rhône-Alpes, and the French Consulate in Quebec City.
