During a career which has expanded for more than a decade, artist Yann Pocreau draws on abstract designs of space and light to create a kind of luminous photography which also refers back to the illuminating nature of photography itself. Through those artworks evocative of different architectural spaces from cathedrals to domestic interiors, the artist emanates from photographs an intimate and sublime relationship with time, space, and thus, selves of the viewers.
We invite you to join us for a talk and a studio tour with the artist Yann Pocreau to hear about his creative visions and inspirations behind some of his most important works including Cathédrale (2013) during his residency at Fonderie Darling.

Montreal-based artists, Hua Jin and Jinyoung Kim both use photography to reflect upon complex modern relationships with notions of home.
In Hua Jin’s My Big Family, what began as a documentation of the artist’s extended family is transformed into a study of the effects of the China’s one-child policy on contemporary families. In Jinyoung Kim’s Jugong Apartments, the abolished architecture of the artist’s childhood home in South Korea speak equally to loss of a once-familiar place and the country’s rapid urbanization in recent decades.
On Sunday, February 11, we invite these two artists to discuss their works in photography, the relationship between personal and social narratives in art, and their understandings of notions of diaspora, homeland, and return.

We want to sharpen our everyday life experience with artistic astuteness. We create opportunities for individuals to visit emerging artists’ studios, to understand art-making process, and to have immersive experience of art.
With guided tours to museums and art institutions, we want to impact and educate general audience with the richness of art and art history. With those events, we hope to bring art close to life and make art accessible for everyone.
