The Rusty Toque | Portfolio | Issue 5 | November 15, 2013
Disquiet and unease reverberate in the work of SOPHIE JODOIN. Since 2004, she has worked exclusively in black and white. Her austere, minimalist drawings frequently serve as the starting point for large-scale presentations with collages, paintings, videos and found objects. Recent solo exhibitions include close your eyes at the Richmond Public Art gallery (2012), Small Chronicles of Everyday Violence at the Musée d’art de Joliette (2011), and I felt a cleaving in my mind at Battat Contemporary (2011) in Montreal. Selected group exhibitions include In These Drawings My Hands Are Dreaming… at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (2013), Front by Front at Museum London (2012), and body / no body at Galerie Bertrand Grimont in Paris (2011). She has worked collaboratively on published novels, dramatic works and poetry, and has been awarded a six-month residency in London, England during 2014 by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. She lives and works in Montreal.
