Opening Reception: Marie-Michelle Deschamps
November 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Franz Kaka is excited to present a solo exhibition of new work by Montreal-based artist Marie-Michelle Deschamps.
Marie-Michelle Deschamps is an artist based in Montreal, Quebec. Her work focuses on the ambiguities of deconstructed language and its transposition in signs and objects. The elusive signification exhibited in her drawings, sculptures and sound works allow for figurative, abstract, and literary interpretations. She holds an M.A. from the Glasgow School of Art. Recently, her work was presented at Parisian Laundry, Montreal, Diagonale, Montreal, YYZ Artists’s Outlet, Toronto (2018); MUDAM, Luxembourg (2017); Ausstellungraum Klingenthal, Basel, Switzerland (2017); Darling Foundry, Montreal (2016) and Glasgow International, Scotland (2016). In 2019, Deschamps was long-listed for the Sobey Art Award and was the recipient of the residency award that will see her work at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn, USA in 2020. Deschamps is represented by Parisian Laundry in Montreal and Galerie Gregor Staiger in Zurich.
Exhibition runs: November 8th – November 30th, 2019
