Deployment presents a recent body of work by Montréal-based artist Emmanuelle Léonard, initiated within an artist residency in Northern Canada, as part of the Canadian Forces Artists Program. In pursuing the photo and video work she has been undertaking for the past 15 years, based on a variety of visual archives and data surrounding different systems – judicial, administrative, military or religious –, Léonard continues to harbour an active interest in authoritative functions and the subversion mechanisms they generate.
