On the Exhibition
In quantum physics, decoherence refers to a process by which two components of a complex entity come to evolve independently from one another. This is one of the underlying themes explored with this series. Each print holds two states that cannot be seen at the same time but yet exist concurrently. They play with the limitations of visual perception and force the viewer to questions assumptions on reality.

In daylight, each print displays a composition of fine black lines. When exposed to UV light or in the dark, a second state appears revealing surfaces or volumes of light. Once both of those states have been witnessed, separately, the very first impression of the print cannot be reproduced as the sight of the second state affects the viewer irreversibly. The series therefore also reflects on the concept of entanglement, as one cannot see the print in a state without thinking of the other. The entanglement of the two states exists permanently in the viewer's mind.

This series was created during a Studio Residency at the Women's Studio Workshop.


On the artist
Anne-Marie's work explores the multifaceted condition of reality: what we see depends on how we look at it. For her prints and textile work, she combines seemingly opposite paradigms for unexpected aesthetics to arise and question our assumptions on the objects and space surrounding us.


Anne-Marie is an alumni from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) of NYU Tisch School of Arts where she researched soft circuitry and materials. She was awarded the Ruth Schirson Levin Fellowship for the 2014-2015 artist in residency program at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn. She received the 2016 Artist Legacy Grant by the Women's Studio Workshop. Her creative process is supported by the Canadian and Quebec Councils for the the Arts. She is currently faculty at the Visible Futures Lab of the School of Visual Arts and she is a Spaceworks Gowanus Grantee. She was selected as a Fellow for the Guttenberg Arts STAR 2018 Program.
