Performance by Patrick Bernatchez
For this Nocturne, we are presenting a performance by Patrick Bernatchez from 7 to 8 p.m. in the heart of his exhibition Les Temps inachevés exhibition.
From within his installation 77k, 1er, 2e et 3e mouvement (Goldberg Experienced.03), made up of a 16-mm film, 8 record players and 8 33-rpm records, the artist will immerse us in an enigmatic atmosphere. He will alter and accentuate sound levels by modulating the components of his work.
Art with a Twist
6 p.m. to 12 a.m.
Slowly and continuously, one twist at a time, we will wrap a small, everyday object with thread and turn it into a novel cocoon. This assembly operation will be preceded and followed by a drawing activity involving observation and interpretation. For this occasion, we will take our inspiration from a remarkable 2007-2013 work titled Fashion Plaza Nights, by Patrick Bernatchez.

About the Nocturnes
The exhibition presents a significant body of works taken from two major projects: Chrysalides and Lost in Time. Bernatchez’s artistic process involves creating distinct pieces – drawings, photographs, films, sound pieces, installations – that form part of a larger conceptual project.The
Grosse Fatigue, a 13-min video installation produced during a residency at the Smithsonian Institute, was inspired by the encyclopaedia concept. The artist undertook to form a narrative about the universe by mixing scientific history with Creation stories belonging to various traditions and cultures.The
