JULIE LEQUIN |
SATURDAY 07 JANUARY 2012 – SATURDAY 10 MARCH 2012
OPENING RECEPTION | FRIDAY 06 JANUARY 2012, 8:00PM – 10:00PM
For her first solo exhibition in Toronto, Julie Lequin presents a selection of chapters from a new multidisciplinary video installation which condenses each year of her life. Effervescent with humor, storytelling, error and wordplay, Top 30 weaves the line between autobiography and fiction.
