Du Besoin De Transposer:
French Restaurant, Montreal, Qc
June 26, 2014 - July 8, 2014.

Mathieu Lambert

Installation view.






The presentation of four works, using images collected and captured from American cities presents an offering into Mathieu Lambert's focus and approach of appropriating signs from the built environment. Du Besoin de Transposer is a juxtaposition nuancing memory and the imagined to investigate a space that lies between the real and the reproduced.

Dialog between a postcard and business card contained within a shared picture frame points to the construction of fictional identities and locations through the use of familiar landmarks as devices that fulfill fantasies of tourism industries. Architectural ornaments from a Rodeo Drive Fa├žade and a Las Vegas
casino lobby are recreated, organic flowers breath under a synthetic sky.
