Philomène LongpréPhilomène Longpré

TRANSCENDARE is a bilingual monograph curated by Christine Redfern that delves indepth into the extraordinary universe of the artist Philomène Longpré. A world of heightened sensations, where captivating creatures projected onto responsive video membranes live in darkened spaces awaiting the presence of the visitors. The power of Longpré’s art comes from her ability to blur the boundaries between the virtual and the real, as well as the visceral reactions she provokes. Through selected full-colour images and insightful texts by leading international writers Kate Mondloch, Florence de Mèredieu, David Howes, Alison Syme, Isa Tousignant, Christine Redfern and from Philomène Longpré herself, this book gives a unique opportunity to explore Longpré’s genius and her astounding contribution to contemporary art.

    • Radio Canada. Painchaud, Audrey. “Entretien avec Philomène Longpré- L’exposition Body tracks”, March 27, 2012.Arts et culture. L’exposition «Body tracks »

      L’exposition «Body tracks» présente des oeuvres collectives dont celle de Philomène Longpré. C’est une exposition qu’on pourrait traduire en français par les traces que laisse les corps. Cette exposition collective fait beaucoup echo au travail d’Ana Mendieta, une artiste américano-cubaine, qui a été très proléfique dans les années 1970. Audrey Painchaud a rencontré Philomène Longpré, une artiste multimédia, qui participe à cette exposition. Comme Ana Mendieta, elle fait dans l’art multimédia et utlise le corps comme moyen d’expression.
