Jacinthe Lessard-L

Jacinthe Lessard-L employs photography to explore the ways that people consider, create, and encounter objects, both as artworks and usable goods. Often Lessard-L gives collaborators specific directions, such as “make a sculpture with these furniture pieces in 10 minutes,” and then photographs the results, comparing the different interpretations and aesthetic judgments. In a similar project based on two-minute sculptures, Lessard-L notes that her subjects “treat the pieces as raw materials for imaginative gestures instead of following the normal procedure,” ending up with constructions that look more like postmodernist assemblage than mass-produced chairs or cabinets. 


Since 2008, Lessard-L’s work has shown across the globe, from New York's Aperture Foundation to Budapest's Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art, and in 2009, she was a resident fellow at the Banff Center in Canada. Her work can be found in several major collections worldwide, including the Musée de l’Élysée in Switzerland.
