/ Exhibition place
Camille Jodoin-Eng is an artist based in Toronto. She has developed a growing visual language of symbols that reveal the intuitive and indefinite. Camille Jodoin-Eng’s studio practice combines mirrored structures, light, papier-mâché, discarded trash, glass, paint, and ink drawings. Often inspired by shrines and temples as spaces devoted to reflecting on otherworldly existences, her work engages with symbology to create physical manifestations representative of the internal world. Camille Jodoin-Eng completed her BFA at OCAD University in 2014 and is currently a collaborator of Patel Brown Gallery. Her recent exhibitions have been presented at the Patel Brown Gallery and the Project Gallery. Camille Jodoin-Eng has exhibited throughout Ontario and Quebec and completed numerous commissioned installations including AGO Massive, SMASH Gardiner, the Gladstone Hotel, The Drake Hotel, and the W Hotel.
Approach and works on display
Disco Teardrop (2018)
The disco ball as a metaphoric sun, the center of the party, rotates slowly suspended in space with a universe of twinkling lights swirling around it. Disco Teardrop is an experimentation in the reflection and movement of light around a room, mirroring greater cosmic systems. Camille Jodoin-Eng has developed a growing visual language of symbols throughout her practice, a wordless language born from intuition and emotion. Each mirrored tile has been engraved with a tiny symbol that is then projected into space as light reflects off the mirrored surface and the teardrop turns on its axis. An entire star map contained in a single teardrop.
