About the Exhibition: 

Transforming the gallery space into a garden, Eve Tagny’s Lost Love - Saisons futures brings together life, death, mourning and renewal. Soil, flowers, trees and rocks live and decay amongst an abundance of synthetic materials. Plastic adorns the artists’ installation, functioning as a vessel for still and moving imagery and for the garden itself. The disparate materials create a harmonious tension and a space for ritual, respite and healing.

Artist Biography: 

Eve Tagny lives in Montreal in between her travels. She holds a BFA in Film Production from Concordia University and a certificate in Journalism from the University of Montreal. Navigating between writing, photography, video and plant-based installations, she explores themes pertaining to body politics and the evolving definitions of hybrid identities, and observes the creative ways in which marginalized individuals and communities commit to live rather than merely service and resist personal annihilation. Most recently, her practice has focused on restoring traumatic disruptions through nature. Her work has been exhibited abroad and in Canada, in places such as at the Gladstone Gallery and Xpace Centre in Toronto, and most recently at Never Apart in Montreal where she presented her first photobook publication as part of her first solo show entitled Lost Love. Tagny has recently been shortlisted for the 2018 Contemporary African Photography prize (CAP).
