Caroline Monnet and Laura Ortman: Exquisite Score
The exhibition Exquisite Score present the result of a correspondence between artist Caroline Monnet and musician Laura Ortman, maintained for months from their respective homes in Montreal and New York. Through exchanges of letters, which also included images, audio recordings, and musical excerpts, they explore, metaphorically and materially, the topography of the land that stretched out between them. Like an echo reverberating on mountainsides, the resulting score both reflects their separation and brings them together. Between Montreal and New York, the exhibition traces a shortcut path, transcending borders—symbolic and physical—a trail for us to walk along outside of time and space.
