close your eyes covers a span of four years and consists of three body of works by Montreal artist Sophie Jodoin: Small Dramas & Little Nothings, Charred and Vigils. Materially, it includes black and white drawings, collages, video, a sculptural piece and tables with artifacts. It is conceived as a long continuous thread echoing the course of one’s life—a collection of narratives and struggles encountered by simply living.
This exhibition is a rare opportunity to view Jodoin’s work on the west coast and it has been scheduled to coincide with the Fourth Annual Vancouver DRAWN Festival, an event that promotes drawing as an important visual medium.
