Re-imagining the work of James Duncan with Iregular
As an epilogue, of the exhibition “Becoming Montreal. The 1800s Painted by Duncan”, the digital work “Mental Maps” uses artificial intelligence to reinterpret James Duncan’s work depicting a composite world of dreamscapes of a Montreal that no longer exists. Chronicler of his time, Duncan documented Montreal’s development over a period of five decades, from 1830 to 1880. Exhibited together for the first time, these one hundred or so works offer viewers a unique journey into 19th-century Montreal. Iregular’s proposal allows a different interpretation of James Duncan’s work and anchors it in the 21st century.
