This will be the first time these works have been shown in Montreal.

LOSING GROUND from ISABELLE HAYEUR on Vimeo.

In the gallery’s video room, Hayeur will present two new videos, Losing Ground (2009) and Hindsight (2009). Filmed in Quartier DIX30 in Brossard, the biggest lifestyle center in Canada, Losing Ground is a critique of urban sprawl and the resulting erosion and homogenization of the countryside across the world.
