A wide range of objects are depicted in Jannick Deslauriers' collection of transparent sculptures. Walking through this gallery, one would feel as if they've entered a distorted reality, as objects and images remain recognizable despite their warped frame.

The use of lighting in this exhibit has a profound impact on how the audience interprets and interacts with the sculptures. By allowing viewers to gaze through the artwork, Jannick Deslaurier effectively incorporates the surrounding environment into her creations. Viewers can interact with the surroundings both in relation to the sculptures and through them.

The Montreal-based artist/teacher creates objects that are both fragile and inviting. Evocative of the attachment one creates with the environment, these sculptures create impressions that are simultaneously impressive and temporary.
