STEVE HEIMBECKER. 16 LATITUDES
From October 1, 2020 to January 31, 2021. The opening of the summer exhibitions will be on Thursday evening, October 1.
Presented as a world premiere at the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke, this exhibition offers a unique immersive experience. By means of audiovisual installations, Steve Heimbecker creates a poetic journey between northern and southern Quebec: from the Pingualuit Crater in Nunavik to a forest near Saint-Étienne-de-Bolton.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Steve Heimbecker is a well-known artist from his home region, the Eastern Townships. He has also received international recognition for his work in media and sound art for many years. Heimbecker has created sound immersion systems for his audio art compositions, installations and performances for nearly 3 decades. Defining space and the architecture of space through sound immersion fascinates him. As Joris Guibert wrote in 2015, Heimbecker “does not pretend to measure the world to conquer it, but to create an alternative sensory perception of it.”
Heimbecker exhibited a work at the Musée that received a highly positive interaction with the public during the 2019 Salon du printemps of artists of the Eastern Townships. The Musée is therefore very pleased to be able to continue this collaboration by presenting 16 Latitudes.
