Words

The art work presented in Call Ampersand Response features a unique interaction between two Canadian artists, co-published by Neives and Artexte."Over a period of several months, Dumontier and Lexier sustained an image-based correspondence by sending each other scans of book covers, found objects, drawings and illustrations belonging to each artist’s respective collection. The project is based on the idea that their collections speak of their shared artistic affinities while informing their practices. Two rules dictated their conduct: each image was to function as a 'call' seeking a 'response' from the other artist, and the dialogue was to end when an image recalling the project’s opening image emerged, thereby constituting a narrative loop."
