Manicouagan : 210 million years of astronomical, environmental and historic upheaval

Manicouagan, la terre-histoire (2023)

Louis Hamelin

Book-object: collages, texts, illustrations, 25 1/4 X 18 1/4 X 1 inches.

Using the format of the book-object, Louis Hamelin recounts his experience of the territory around the Manicouagan reservoir. Writings, images gleaned here and there and illustrations accumulate over the pages to tell the story of the expedition. From a variety of angles, the writer reflects on the astronomical impact, Innu territorial occupation, hydroelectric development, biodiversity and climate change. The very form of the book recalls that of the logbook, notebook and album, once indispensable paper artifacts for exploration. With a limited print run of ten copies, the book is a tribute to the upheavals surrounding the Manicouagan reservoir, to the boreal forest and to the Innu people who have suffered the consequences of these disruptions.
