Over the past twenty years, Québec artist Diane Landry has produced a body of playful works inspired by the insignificant gestures and objects that make up our daily existence. Combining cultural and popular imagery, she takes pleasure in swinging between reality and an imaginary, poetic world on the edge of the absurd. A multi-disciplinary artist, Landry creates what she calls “oeuvres mouvelles”—works whose full effect involves the passage of time. Invoking the wonder of childhood fantasy, her kinetic projects captivate viewers, causing them to linger and experience. Landry’s installations, sculptures and performances often contain an assortment of recycled and mass-produced objects drawn from our everyday world. Employing subtle combinations of sound, movement, light and shadow to transform these ordinary things into unpredictable, seemingly organic entities, she attempts to recover the meaning our material culture lost through mass manufacture.
