Josée Landry Sirois
She works on paper and sculpturally repurposes small, seemingly unremarkable objects gleaned from everyday life. The resulting work, in the form of drawings, collages, sculptures and other singular works of accretion, partakes of a tender strangeness.
In recent years, Landry Sirois has explored territories, ecosystems, and geographies in a series of drawings in which her increasingly obsessive use of line has come to symbolize life itself. The resulting assemblages bear the traces of the challenging paths that led to their creation; made with the castoffs of daily life – items like spent matches, candy wrappers, or pencil shavings – they construct a discourse on the fragility of physical things and the persistence of existence.
