LETTER, an exhibition of French contemporary artist Benoît Maire
French artist Benoît Maire works with film, sculpture and photography, setting materials in dialogue with linguistics and philosophy. Informed by conceptual art practices, Maire brings a material sensibility that draws out an object’s potential to affect, while maintaining an aesthetics of ideas. Poetic systems of display reframe artifacts of observation as objects of study and interrogation. On the occasion of this project, Maire will also launch a new limited edition artist book, printed in France by One Star Press. LETTER is Maire’s first solo exhibition in Canada.
