SUPERNOVA by Caroline Monnet
The Supernova exhibition is an explosion of colors generating forms that suggest the fragmentation of the territory over generations. Each of the silkscreens is named after a letter of the Greek alphabet, reminding us that human evolution acts according to a series of events that hide succinct phenomena that we cannot control. It is an invitation to reflect on the traces we leave on our environment and the repercussions they can have in the long term.
Born to an Anishinaabe mother and a French father, Caroline Monnet is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Montreal. After studying sociology and communication at the University of Ottawa and the University of Granada in Spain, she pursued a career in visual arts and film. Her work is regularly displayed internationally and can also be found in prestigious museum collections. Her practice is often minimalist yet emotionally charged. Monnet has become known for her work with industrial materials, combining the vocabulary of popular and traditional visual cultures with the tropes of modernist abstraction to create unique hybrid forms. She is represented by the Blouin Division Gallery.
