Beaucage’s Chill Bivouac Rhymes paintings and mix media exhibition invites you to follow a small group of teens at a rave concert. A young Bolshoi ballerina; Ekaterina becomes a rave bunny and escapes her Russian lover to venture in cutting shapes with a young surfer from Bora Bora.

In parallel to S/Z’s Roland Barthes search for openness of interpretation in literature; Beaucage organized her current exhibition to allow for a looseleaf narrative. Barthes had concluded that an ideal text is one that is reversible, or open to the greatest variety of independent interpretations and not restrictive in meaning; avoiding strict timelines and exact definitions of events. Beaucage brings about this reversibility in the exhibition by choosing a series of paintings that mixes the plot in a non linear fashion, including molly induced moments and cinematic tropes in 3D.

All the images visually rhyme with one another around a central bivouac; a campsite in the woods where the Rave is happening. The rhymes are geometric elements that are both color and sound.

The viewer will discover the paintings by looking through sculptures and painting installation. Twelves feet multicolor trees, an octagon geometric shape and freestanding painted campers are installed on the gallery floor to produce a deep focus space. The inclusion of the three levels of foreground, middle ground and extreme background objects (a large painting 9 x12 feet) will create for the viewer a similar effect to a depth of field composition in cinematography; allowing the viewer to focus both close and distant planes.

Beaucage created enamel on Iron pieces that where fired at 1450° F; fusing glass to metal. Influenced by Limoges enamelings from the mid 1600s, her ravers are incapsulated in a deep glossy tranced out spaces.

Edith Beaucage (b. Quebec, Canada) currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
