The City of Dorval is proud to present the exhibition Des mots dans les mains, by Karine Demers, at the Peter B. Yeomans Cultural Centre (1401 Chemin du Bord-du-Lac–Lakeshore), from May 26 to September 3.

This exhibition explores the subject of formal repetition, self-presentation, and transformation. The artist folds, assembles, and glues the paper materials, following different rhythms of play of colors, directions, angles, and sequences reminiscent of the kaleidoscope experience. The results are hybrid works, including painting and sculpture, that invite people to dive into reliefs with surprising and infinite dimensions.

Karine Demers’ approach is a reflection of a desire to stage beauty in the vulnerability of our existence. Presented since 2017, her works have ignited curiosity and astonishment, in osmosis with her personality. Incandescent of patience and creative vitality, she highlights the delicacy of certain pieces.

The City invites residents to participate in the exhibition by folding a piece of paper that will be added to the collective work of the exhibition! The artist will then present a work of art from the origami pieces left by the visitors.

A vernissage with the artist will take place Thursday, May 26, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
