Abstract (English)

For the ninth edition of this drawing biennial, Mongrain has chosen eight Québec artists whose work goes beyond the traditional limits of this medium. He explores the effects of the recent emancipation of drawing, expounds its specificity and comments on the work of the artists, prefering the notion of instrumentality to that of self-referentiality.

Résumé

Pour la neuvième édition de cette biennale du dessin, Mongrain a choisi huit artistes québécois dont le travail dépasse les limites traditionnelles de ce médium. Il explore les effets de la récente émancipation du dessin, expose les traits qui en font la spécificité et commente le travail de chacun des artistes, substituant la notion d'instrumentalité à celle d'auto-référentialité.
