La Biennale de Montréal, the Canadian Art Foundation International Speaker Series and the Faculty of Arts at UQÀM present:
In this eight-point lecture, I will try to clarify why it’s important – today – to look at images of mutilated human bodies like those I have used and incorporated in Touching Reality (2012) and other works such as Easycollage (2014), Collage-Truth (2012) or Ur-Collage (2008). This entails: 1. Origin; 2. Redundancy; 3. Invisibility; 4. “Tendency to iconism”; 5. Reduction to facts; 6. Victim syndrome; 7. Irrelevance of Quality; 8. Detachment through “hypersensitivity”.
