About the Exhibition


The Québec-Bangkok Artists Exchange was initiated by Le Lieu, centre en art actuel in collaboration with the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) and with the cooperation of Québec City artist-run centres Avatar, La chambre blanche, L'Œil de Poisson, and VU. It was made possible by the financial support of the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec and l'Entente MCCQ/Ville de Québec.

À la rencontre de l'autre

In conjunction with the Québec-Bangkok Artists Exchange, VU welcomes Thai artists Miti Ruangkritya and Charinthorn Rachurutchata for a residency followed by an exhibition. Miti Ruangkritya's work revolves around urbanity, and unfolds through the observation of sites, people, objects, and events that enliven the city and give it its particular identity. Charinthorn Rachurutchata constructs imagined worlds through photography and photomontage, with various anachronistic references to the fantastic and to history, religion, and popular culture. The two artists will take advantage of their time in Québec City to create new work which they will exhibit in VU's galleries.

In parallel, VU presents the work of Renaud Philippe and Marc-André Jésus, two photographers from Québec city who, as part of this exchange, went to Bangkok in fall 2015 for a residency-exhibition at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC). Using a roaming, documentary-style approach, Renaud Philippe made photographs that evoke disappearance, as the coastal populations around the Gulf of Thailand are confronted with the progressive submerging of their cities and villages into the sea. This transformation of the land and the city is echoed in the work of Marc-André Jésus, whose portrait of a young Thai couple, who are situated halfway between two sexual identities, represents a intimate look at gender transition, experienced as much by the individual as through interpersonal relations.

This exhibition represents the meeting of works that approach themes of multiplicity, diversity, and transformation through an interest in the city as well as in the people who inhabit it.
