About the Item

Linda Stein, Xylo Brush 330 - Mixed Media Metal Wood Stone Contemporary Art Wall Sculpture In the 1990s Linda Stein began to work on a series called Blades, sculptural works that incorporated machete blades. She hand-dulled her machete blades, bent them, curved them, and in the end rendered them harmless. By depriving them of their destructive potential and turning them into something soft and pliable, these works now possess a tactile, even playful nature. Xylo Brush 330 is from her Musical Blades series, where she physically combined found instruments, some which are still playable, with her dulled machete blades and other elements of wood, metal, and stone. Stein's works are in more than 25 museum permanent collections, including Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Georgia Museum of Art, and Ringling Museum of Art in the US; Victoria Gallery & Museum and Manchester Art Gallery in the UK; Espoo Museum of Modern Art in Finland; and Konstmuseet i Skövde in Sweden.

    With its meticulous attention to detail, Karine Payette’s work opens up numerous reflections on the different ways we perceive reality. Payette achieves this by adroitly evoking the notion of doubt. Both playful and offbeat, her universe is built up from stripped-down stagings that conjure up private, domestic stories, and scenes from everyday life. Carefully arranging objects in space, she creates “zones of anxiety” where different elements overlap: loss of control, domination, and forms that might themselves take over. The artworks brought together in L’ombre d’un doute highlight the various touchstones of the multidisciplinary practice Karine Payette has been developing since 2010. The exhibition borrows its title from the Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name (Shadow of a Doubt), where a young girl discovers the dark side of the world. This shadowy reference evokes the fragrance of mystery that wafts among Payette’s works, and the need to decipher, like a riddle, that which takes place before our eyes. As soon as he/she enters the exhibition, the viewer is confronted with a puddle of milk covering the floor, in which he/she finds several kernels of floating Rice Krispies...
