At 6 pm CCFM Art Gallery
Véronique Doucet (Rouyn-Noranda, Québec) Slowing Down Time
It begins with photographs of waste and objects abandoned on the roadside. Forgotten things that we don’t even notice anymore, although they say a lot about our lifestyle and its consequences.
It’s these “moments of truth”, as she calls them, that Véronique Doucet captures and magnifies. The artist from Rouyn-Noranda (Québec) impregnates her photographs with her bright-coloured painting, in a process she describes as a symbolic decontamination of a nature devastated by men.
At 7 pm Théâtre Cercle Molière’s patio
Aurélia Bizouard (Vancouver, BC) Aurora Civitas
For Aurélia Bizouard, glass is a metaphor for life. This material is at the core of her artistic process, through which she projects all sorts of lights. Her works create immersive and interactive experiences, that transform a ordinary object into a source of contemplation. That way, the artist is making us wonder about our relationships to others and our environment.
Discussion Oeuvres en contexte : Art extérieur éphémère
What is ephemeral public art? What kinds of challenges does it bring up? How to design a work that will survive the weather?
All these questions and many others will be addressed in this discussion, that will revolve around the themes of public art and the context of outside presentation. Several Winnipeg contributors, such as Eduardo Aquino (Cool Gardens), Stéphane Dorge (Cool Streets) or Alexandra Keim (Nuit Blanche) will discuss the issues in a bilingual discussion moderated by Émilie Lemay.
This discussion will be followed by a workshop by artist-in-residence Aurélia Bizouard (Vancouver). Her projections of lights and paintings on glass invite us to take a new look at the places we live in collectively.
Come to take part in the discussion!
