VOX’s first exhibition and book for children

Lapincyclope is different. He has only one eye and would like to jump into his rabbit hole without chipping his teeth… He meets a worm that has no eyes but can navigate through holes in the ground! Together they will discover the power of imagination and the inner workings of sight: a little with the eyes, a lot with the brain, always with the heart.

In a playful atmosphere and through the story of a friendly one-eyed rabbit, Jonathan Plante invites us to (re)discover the mysteries of visual perception in various ways. In keeping with his practice–having already explored stereoscopy to simulate depth using two flat images–the artist unveils a new animated video, original paintings, a giant didactic book, and mirror anamorphoses that will stimulate the imagination of little ones and grown-ups alike.

These unexpected and interactive aesthetic experiences notably address abstraction, art history and optical illusions, with activities targeting different age groups. Finally, a children’s book created as an extension of the exhibition, will allow you to (re)visit Lapincyclope’s story for years to come.

The exhibition and accompanying book were supported by: Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec, Ville de Montréal as part of Entente sur le développement culturel de Montréal, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. They were produced in collaboration with: Maison Théâtre, Les éditions du passage.
