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
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.
