For its first participation at NADA New York, galerie antoine ertaskiran will be showing works by emerging artists Jacynthe Carrier and Andrea Sala.

A section of the booth is devoted to the screening of Jacynthe Carrier‘s video titled Cycle presented together with a series of photographs, both conceived during a three-month residency at Residency Unlimited in Brooklyn. Jacynthe Carrier uses photography and video to examine relationships between the body and the environment, as well as the way we conceive and consume space. Here, the raw environment and the interactions between the characters are choreographed and directed as to become a territory of re-creation. Carrier carries out different types of interventions in which bodies and objects are assembled in performative situations and/or “mises en scène.” She develops contemporary allegories, everyday, personal and shared.

Born in Lévis Québec, Jacynthe Carrier obtained a MFA from Concordia University. Her work has been shown in several solo and group exhibitions in Canada, France, Brazil, and the United States. Most notably the Québec Triennale 2011 at the musée d’art contemporain de Montréal; the 4e Manifestation internationale d’art de Québec; Centre de la photographie Vu, at Le Fresnoy, Studio National des Arts Contemporains, Tourcoing (France); Brooklyn/Montreal VideoZones, at Interstate Project, Brooklyn and at la Galerie d’art de l’UQAM. She was awarded the Prix à la création artistique by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec at the 29th edition of the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois. She is the recipient of the Prix Pierre-Ayot of 2012.

Andrea Sala presents sculptures and works on paper inspired by his reflection on the history of modernist design and architecture, questioning the materials that constitute them and their formal values. Sala imagines new environments and worlds by mixing present and future images, oscillating between reality, fiction and imagination. Taking his inspiration from design objects, Andrea Sala appropriates and transforms already existing forms, finding new potentialities and reshaping them into new aspects and contexts. Born in Como (Italy), Andrea Sala divides his time between Montreal and Milan, where he received his diploma from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts (Milan). His works have gained international attention and have been exhibited in several venues, including the 9th Venice Biennale of Architecture (2004), the MAMCO Musée d’art moderne et contemporain in Geneva, Kaleïdoscope Space in Milan (2010), La Maison Rouge in Paris (2011), the Musée d’art de Joliette (2012) and the Fondation Molinari in Montreal (2012). His works can be found in the collection of the MAXXI – National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, Rome, at the Banca Albertini Syz Milano and private collections. Some of his works have been exhibited as part of the latest Triennale of Milan.
