Diane Obomsawin, an artist well known and appreciated in the domains of film animation, comics and the visual arts. Obomsawin’s first solo exhibition, “Les mondesgathers a corpus of previously unseen comic strips, animation films and installations as well as an animated short drawn from the artist’s filmography. Nine works in total, produced between 2010 and 2019. The works in this exhibition attest to in-depth research and to a sharp, calm and amused perception of the technological developments that shape the world we live in. The artist expresses his interest in cutting-edge technologies (involving data analysis, automation and surveillance) by keeping a certain distance from the supposed benefits touted by the industries that develop these technologies and impose them on us.

Guided visit and vernissage on Saturday, May 25th, at 2 p.m.
