Myriam Yates, Parcs. Playgrounds
Optica, Montréal
From November 6 to December 28 2021

— Josianne Poirier

Behind the photographic tour of New York Parks that she offers, Myriam Yates reveals her sensitivity to the quality of life in urban environments. As Josianne Poirier observes, Yates’s documentation of playgrounds encourages us to reflect on the landscape. Drawn to layouts from a certain era – one when “child development was envisaged differently,” Poirier writes in this review – Yates documents structures made of concrete, steel, and fibreglass in shapes that mimic aesthetic currents. “The heritage of artistic and architectural modernity is a strong current throughout this body of work,” Poirier notes, as the images attest to “the overflowing of art avant-garde concerns into the spaces of daily life.”
