- Celestial Mechanics, youth exhibition, VOX, Montreal (Quebec, Canada).
VOX invites children (6 to 12 years old) to discover contemporary art with this brand new exhibition created just for them! With Celestial Mechanics, artist Diane Landry offers young audiences an artistic, philosophical and ecological reflection on the notion of time. Using everyday items and repurposed materials brought to life through movement, light, sound and video, she explores the distinct time scales specific to humanity, nature and the universe. Through her creative, poetic lens, the artist transforms these simple objects – including bicycle wheel rims, plastic bags and water bottles – into long-term signifiers of our lifestyle choices. Diane Landry’s kinetic works will prompt children to ask questions about how time passes – quickly or slowly, as the case may be!
