Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Rome, 1er et 2 novembre 1975 (still), 2019–2021
Lili Reynaud-Dewar: I Want All of the Above to Be the Sun
May 18 – Sep 17, 2023
Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art
Montreal, Canada

At the intersection of sculpture, performance and video, the exhibition Lili Reynaud-Dewar: I Want All of the Above to Be the Sun offers visitors an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the main aspects of the practice of French artist Lili Reynaud-Dewar. For almost 20 years, Reynaud-Dewar has been creating environments and situations in which she uses her body and that of others to evoke the vulnerability and empowerment associated with public position statements.

This exhibition brings together for the first time more than 30 of her videos produced over the years where she is featured dancing, her body painted, in museums, galleries, and artist residencies to which she has been invited, as well as a recently begun series of self-portraits made of polished aluminum to establish a dialogue between works based on repetitions of a single gesture performed in different mediums and contexts.

The exhibition is completed by the choral installation (four simultaneous projections) titled Rome, November 1st and 2nd 1975 (2019–2021), initiated by Reynaud-Dewar during her stay at the Villa Medici in Rome. A look back at the final day of filmmaker and author Pier Paolo Pasolini, the work reconstructs his final interview and the circumstances surrounding his murder, with the collaboration of 20 members of his close circle, who play him and his companion, the young Giuseppe Pelosi.
