Diane Landry (Quebec)
La morue/The cod
2 Nov. 2002

Working instinctively she places everyday objects -a teapot, an ice skate, a rat, a pair of sling-back shoes, a trophy- on a pair of turntables, and watches the shadows they cast on the wall in front of her. These shadows, which rotate and swirl to a soundscape of exaggerated rumbles and scratches from the turntable, are utterly captivating; Shakespeare would have called them wondrous strange. (from a text by Robert Enright.)

Diane Landry lives and works in Quebec City. Since 1987, she has performed and exhibited in Canada, the United States, Mexico, France, Austria and Germany. The first monograph devoted to her work ?Diane Landry, Oeuvres Mouvelles? was published by the Centre de diffusion et de production de la photographie VU in 1998. Her recent solo exhibition, Les se'dentaires clandestins presented at the Muse'e du Que'bec in 2001, was also accompanied by a catalogue and audio CD.
