Why So Many Ties?
Ludovic Boney

Exhibition Dates: January 21, 2022 - February 26, 2022

Opening Reception: January 21, 2022 - 6 PM to 9 PM (M:ST)

Presented as a sculptural landscape, this immersive installation invites visitors to embody the concept of passage by walking through and around its formal elements: two thousand metal rods, pine boards, and recycled plastic bags. With an interest in the aesthetics of sensory experience, Boney’s sculpture evokes an experiential field, which offers both ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ vantage points and a multiplicity of spaces from the ecological to the political.

“Why so many ties?” was first presented at OBORO (Montreal) in 2017 and has been adapted to respond to TRUCK’s Main Space.

Ludovic Boney is an Indigenous artist of the Huron-Wendat Nation, originating from Wendake (QC). He has created many compelling and significant art pieces, some of which were acquired by Quebec’s greatest museums and institutions. Boney has taken part in several solo and group exhibitions in Canada and in France. In 2017, he received the Reveal Scholarship offered by the Hnatyshyn Foundation and was nominated in the long list of the Sobey Awards. Among his latest achievements in public arts, we note his impressive Réaction en chaîne installed at L’École de Technologie Supérieure of Montreal, the imposing Cosmologie sans Genèse at the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec or the spectacular Loess at the Trois-Rivières Amphitheater. His works are part of many private collections.
