Galerie Trois Points is pleased to announce the first museum exhibition by David Gillanders. The artist will be part of Unfaithful Mornings. The Art of Protocols starting November 7th at Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. The exhibition curated by Bernard Lamarche includes works by Patrick Bernatchez, Martin Boisseau, Martin Bourdeau, Sylvie Cotton, Robbin Deyo, Raphaëlle de Groot, Sam Kinsley, Germaine Koh, François Lacasse, Renée Lavaillante, Immony Men, Jocelyn Robert and Kelly Wood.
The show takes its name from the 1989 feature fillm Les matins infidèles by Jean Beaudry and François Bouvier in which a photographer takes for a full year a picture at the same street corner every morning in order to provide a writer with his raw creative material. The fifteen Canadians and Quebec-based artists presented in the exhibition work across a wide range of esthetic sensibility and all share the use of self-imposed rules and protocols.
Gillanders will be exhibiting his series Acceleration (2008) for which he devised a protocol reflecting on the phenomenon of exponential growth. This mathematical concept is here represented through the application of a multiplying number of paint marks over ten works, growing from two to a thousand and twenty-four traces on canvas. With no other constraint than the paintings’ dimensions, Acceleration is an entreprise that could well be have been continued infinitely.
David Gillanders is born in Toronto. He studied at the University of Western Ontario and McGill University. He spent most of his career in Montreal and recently moved to Ottawa. His works has been widely exhibited among the Canada and the United States. He is part of numerous private and publics collections, notably the Collection Prêt d’œuvres d’art du Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Loto-Québec, Bank of Montreal and the Méridien in Versailles.
