Isabelle Laverdière

On vous rendra visite


In the manner of an illustrated book, Isabelle Laverdière links a series of objects and drawings pertaining to agriculture and food. Images identified with farms, animals and landscapes are represented and produced from domestic materials: soap, sugar, chocolate, crockery, pasta. The domestic world thus evoked plays upon the juxtaposition of its industrial and « hand-made » materials. Reality is gently skewed in this delightful banquet for the senses.
