close your eyes covers a span of four years and consists of three body of works by Montreal artist Sophie Jodoin: Small Dramas & Little Nothings, Charred and Vigils. Materially, it includes black and white drawings, collages, video, a sculptural piece and tables with artifacts.
Jodoin’s work has the capacity to draw the viewer in to its intimate dramas through the sensitive and proficient handling of her thought provoking subjects. Equally conceptual and representational, her drawn series of works can take up to two years to realize. close your eyes is conceived as a long continuous thread echoing the course of one’s life—a collection of narratives and struggles encountered by simply living.
This exhibition is a rare opportunity to view Jodoin’s work on the west coast and it has been scheduled to coincide with the Fourth Annual Vancouver DRAWN Festival, an event that promotes drawing as an important visual medium.
