In 1987, while planting trees in British Columbia, Gilbert began a seven-year photo project documenting the forestry industry from a tree planter’s point of view. The body of work that arose from this experience, Shaping the New Forest, testifies to the far-ranging impact of Canada’s natural resource exploitation on the environment. Twenty years later, Gilbert turned her camera on the landscape of Quebec and found it reshaped by economic parameters.

This exhibition presents photographs taken over the 25-year period from 1988 to 2013.

For many years now, Michel Lamothe has made the notion of landscape the core focus of his photography. This retrospective exhibition attempts to shed light on the different forms of exploration, and the consistent aspects, of what is far more than a simple theme.

The various series he has developed over the years seem to play, each in its own way, with the ambiguity inherent in the images, but also with our ability to truly see the world around us. The exhibition also includes works dealing with the human landscape.

Bernard Landriault and Michel Paradis have been collecting contemporary Quebec art for more than 25 years and presently own close to 200 works. At first glance, their collection appears eclectic, with no one medium, artist, theme or movement predominating. This is not surprising, since it began with diverse pieces that caught their fancy at exhibitions. But the works that attract them often share a peculiar feature, an invisible bond of kinship.
