Guy Tremblay’s photographs represent trees as witnesses to a nature which appears intact to us. A poetic effect emanates from them due to the subtlety of their tone declining a range of gray, black and white which gives the impression that these images are timeless.

Reminisci ou la mémoire volontaire
The works in this exhibition evoke the Polytechnique event on December 6
1989. They transform the exhibition hall into a place of memory on the violence done to these women. This memory is transmitted by the photographs of bouquets on which Catherine Arsenault sewed flowers picked from her garden, as well as a facility. The presentation of a video in which the artist recounts the stages of her creative project testifies to his intimate and historical reading of the event.
