Acme, supporting artists since 1972

Acme Project Space

 

The Acme Project Space ran from June 2009 to December 2015. It provided an opportunity for those artists who are part of our Residency & Awards Programme and our International Residencies Programme with a public space within which to develop projects, show new work and engage in a critical dialogue with a wider audience.

Current recipient of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) six month London studio residency, Sophie Jodoin, will be exhibiting a minimalist installation of works created and selected for the Acme Project Space. 

This new series of annotated found book pages, works on paper, photographs, and a large scale charcoal and pastel drawing of an immense boulder, presents quiet investigations into time and stillness. The disparate elements cohere in an austere set of voices and an ambiguous visual narrative. Each work functions as a word pulled into a complex foreboding repository of loss and memories.


Biography
Sophie Jodoin's series of drawings frequently serve as the starting point for installations involving collage, painting, found objects and video. Her works have been exhibited internationally in artist-run spaces, private and public galleries, museums and art fairs, and can be seen in the current issues of two periodicals dedicated to drawing: Berlin-based FUKT, and Montreal's HB magazine. Her collaborative projects include published novels, dramatic works and poetry. This is Sophie Jodoin’s first public solo in the UK. She lives and works in Montreal. 

The artist would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
