Mass production is tending to re-define the lines between supposedly inert and passive material things and human beings, considered the only subjects endowed with agency. Even images are far from being impermeable to this and spread presently beyond the two-dimensional space, becoming objects in themselves.
MOMENTA Montréal thus explores the universes built between individuals and their material environment, highlighting the reciprocal relations between subject and object. In addition, Kapwani Kiwanga and Maryse Larivière have conceived of a series of artworks exclusive to this publication.
Featuring the work of almost 40 artists including: Francis Alÿs, Kader Attia, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Ana Mendieta, Bridget Moser, and Rafael Ortega, among many others.
Published alongside MOMENTA Montréal | Biennale de l’image: La vie des choses / The Life of Things, Montreal, 2019.
