Michèle Lapointe is a seasoned glass artist, also working with photography, lost objects and other materials to elaborate complex and fascinating installations imbued with bittersweet reminiscence of childhood. Glass recipients gather doll heads as mock scientific exams, the pillows get glassy and transform into morphing surfaces for the video: the unattainable search for the truth of the past is materialised by those vain attempts. The plastic wealth of the materials, the melancholy and the poetic spirit that animate the artworks provide a one-of-a-kind and moving experience to the audience.
