This publication was produced by the Burnaby Art Gallery to coincide with Vancouver-based contemporary artist Lyse Lemieux’s survey exhibition on June 25 to September 19th, 2021. Lemieux’s interdisciplinary practice focuses primarily on drawing, sculpture, and installation. Her works on paper investigate the space between painting and drawing, abstraction and representation as it relates to the human figure.
Trespassers/Intrus focuses on Lemieux’s evolving engagement with the body. Through sculpture and drawings in ink, paint, and fabric, transformation is shown through a choreography of hybridized elements— through animal references, appendages, and articles of clothing that both obscure and reveal. The catalog features essays by Jennifer Cane, Robin Laurence, and Otoniya J. Okot Bitek.
