AUDE MOREAU: LESS IS MORE OR

Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran
Montréal, Canada
Until November 24, 2018

Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran is proud to present Less is More orAude Moreau’s latest solo exhibition. The project is the culmination of the site-specific intervention series the artist has been developing since 2010 in major cities across North America. The exhibition brings together a film presented in a large-scale projection and a series of photographs documenting the public intervention that took place at the Toronto-Dominion Centre in Toronto over three nights, from September 2 to September 4, 2017.

This eye-grabbing, monumental installation utilized the already existing lighting system of the Toronto-Dominion Centre’s offices to compose “LESS IS MORE OR” on Ludwig Mies van der Rohe towers’ facades. Aude Moreau’s reassessment of Mies van der Rohe’s work and his famous credo invites viewers to reconsider their approach to the concepts of openness and transparency as emancipatory values inherited from modernity. The exhibition explores the links between history and the present; economy and geography; architecture and the city.

The artist wishes to thank Le Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec for its financial support, as well as all contributors to the project especially TD Bank and Cadillac Fairview.
