Artist Project | Céline Huyghebaert | Poster Series

Updated: Oct 27, 2021

We’re pleased to launch the second set of eight new artist posters featuring projects by Andrea Mortson, Céline Huyghebaert, Jon Klassen and Laura Watson. They are each autonomous works, but can also be read collectively through the lens of the pandemic, with subject matter such as fear, safety and mortality.


An open book sits on a black surface. On the left page in a high-contrast image of two pillows on a white bed sheet. On the right, three columns of text read: "abyss, alcove, aperture, cavern, cavity, crack, crater, crevice, cut, deficiency, deficit, dint, ditch, dump, emptiness, excavation, exit, fissure, gap, hole, hollow, house, incision, insufficiency, interval, lack, lacuna, mouth, niche, nothing, opening, orifice, outlet, perforation, pinhole, pinhole, pit, pocket, pore, recess, rift, vacuity, void".

The Cracks You Fell Into

18x24"


This list is related to one word that still can be used to describe the place where you live, the spot where you hide, the cracks you fell into, the wounds inflicted on you, parts of your sexual anatomy, the space that will swallow you whole, your lack of something.


Bio


Céline Huyghebaert is an artist and a writer. She works most commonly with text and its relationship with image, book and space. In her own practice, she uses a broad range of techniques, like traditional and digital printing processes, collage, sound and archives, to tell stories that are part documentary part fiction. In 2019, she won the Governor General’s Award for her first novel Le drap blanc published by Le Quartanier, and she was awarded the Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art. She has been living in Montréal since 2002.
