About the Artist

About the Exhibition


Born in Montréal, Ève Cadieux lives and works in Québec City. She holds a master's degree in art history and visual art from the Université de Montréal. Her work has been exhibited in Québec, across Canada, and internationally; notably, her photographic series Les Antres was part of the exhibition Obra Coleccion. El artista como coleccionista, curated by Joan Fontcuberta, which travelled to the Barcelona Foto Colectania, the Sala San Benito of Valladolid, and the Centro Andaluz de la Fotografia in Almeria. Characterized by an ever-growing fascination for objects gleaned over time and for places that hold memory, Ève Cadieux's work is often photographic and reserves an important place for writing, taking the form of installations and artist's books.


Every day on online shopping sites, myriad objects from more or less distant times go on sale, testifying to overconsumption and the speed of technological obsolescence. Digging into this boundless source of digital images, Ève Cadieux gathers her diverse findings: objects photographed by internet users in the hope of finding a buyer. Standing alongside each other, the numerous articles%u2014from the Lite-Brite to the already obsolete iPhone%u2014retrace the evolution of objects that accompanied the everyday life of recent generations. The images form a collection that appears to pay homage to those things that we cherish before neglecting them. These (little) relics call not only for nostalgia, but also for reflection on the future of our material culture.

The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the twentieth anniversary of Méduse. The cooperative's ten organizations present a joint program of activities under the theme of the butterfly effect to evoke the immense reach of artistic creation. In this context, two Quebec City artist photographers who also are important members of VU and of the Méduse community were invited to exhibit. The distinct photographic universes of Ève Cadieux and Reno Salvail show a world in eternal change, where new futures emerge at every moment.

Ève Cadieux wishes to thank VU and Méduse.
