Yann Pocreau


In this exhibition, Montreal artist Yann Pocreau unveils new works that are the fruit of explorations he made in a creative residency at the Darling Foundry (2016-2018) sponsored by the MMFA, as well as during a research stay at the Mont-Mégantic Observatory in 2018.

The staging of lighting has been central to Pocreau’s approach for a number of years. In the first gallery, the artist will present solar and lunar blueprints, lumen prints, new photographic works and an in situ sculptural installation. In the second gallery, a projection will complement seventy-four photographic portraits – “cabinet cards” that date to the late 19th century and embody one of the earliest expressions of Western individualism – perforated with constellation-like patterns.
