Using a painting by Lucio de Heusch, L’île aux Corneilles, other artworks are employed to create an experience of distance. The five authors’ texts gauge this distance by means of the volume’s graphic design and through sound. This exploration is carried out in the book and sound recording in addition to the exhibition itself. The publication was produced to coincide with the exhibition Épreuve de distance, which was shown at the Galerie de l’UQAM from September 5 to October 4, 2003. It won two awards in the 2004 Grafika competition, in the exhibition catalogue and special jury prize categories.
