Faire fiction (audito) belongs to the body of work presented within the framework of the exhibition Définir la lumière locale at Galerie Lilian Rodriguez in 2010, in which the artist sought to capture the singular characteristics of light in a contextual optic. The absence of the physical body in his work in favour of an architecture enhanced by light is what guides his current explorations on the subjectivity of the image and body/space relations. For the artist, this particular image evokes subjective screens masked by colour, texture, and light, and represents a synthesis of part of his work.
Born in Quebec in 1980, Yann Pocreau lives and works in Montreal. Through photography, he has become interested in the strong presence of place and subject, their intimate cohabitation, and their effect on the narrative framework of the images. Pocreau has participated in several Canadian and European exhibitions, including Québec Gold presented in Reims in 2008; Exercices d’empathie presented at Espace Bortier in Brussels; Expansion at Galerie de l’UQAM; Out of Grace at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery, and recently within the framework of Montreal’s Mois de la Photo. His work has been documented in a variety of magazines (CV, Canadian Art, Spirale, OVNI, Next Level-UK, etc.) and is featured in the collections of the National Bank of Canada, Hydro-Québec, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d’art de Joliette, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec’s Prêt d’œuvres d’art, and in several private collections.
