EXHIBITION

OPENING

March 16, 2022: 5:00 p.m.

Artist Nayla Dabaji is driven by an interest in migration, temporality and the way mobility and lack of information can destabilize our daily lives and alter our perception of the world. Documentaire en dérive is an examination of the creative process behind her video Boomerang. A work that can be interpreted on a number of levels, it captures the ambiguous and polymorphous nature of memory, taking as its point of departure the phenomenon of being out of sync – a lag caused as much by the delay of electronic transmission as by reminiscence of the past. Fascinated by the traces of ourselves we leave behind, the Lebanese-Montreal artist explores these experiential fragments through photography, art installation, video and text, juxtaposing different histories, geographies and narrative structures.
