TORONTO - THE POWER PLANT - MANON DE BOER
20.09.2008 > 23.11.2008
Manon de Boer's solo exhibition combines two films and one audio work that, in different ways, capture people in the act of remembering. Sylvia Kristel - Paris shows the star of the soft-core Emmanuelle films reminiscing about her past in Paris. Resonating Surfaces meanwhile, creates a picture of Paris and São Paulo through the memories of Suely Rolnik: a psychoanalyst, translator and former lover of Gilles Deleuze. The sound piece, Switch (1998), records vocalist Alison Goldfrapp attempting to replicate monologues given in languages that she doesn't understand.
Curated by Senior Curator of Programs, Helena Reckitt
Manon de Boer recently participated in the 2007 Venice Biennale, the 2008 Berlin Biennial and in a 2007-08 solo exhibition organised by the Frankfurter Kunstverein and Witte de With, Rotterdam.
