PARCOURS 3 : Graduates’ Exhibition DPAA

From Thursday, August 13 to Thursday, August 27, 2015
Opening: Thursday, August 13, 2015 – 6 pm to 9 pm
Exhibition schedule: Wednesday to Saturday, 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Intensively involved for the past year in the Master’s Degree in Current Artistic Practices at Sherbrooke University, Johanne Bilodeau, Marise Fillion and Stéphanie Garofalo have had the opportunity to feed, confront and revisit their creative process in order to position themselves as an artist-researcher. They will conclude their reflective journey with the exhibition Parcours3. The exhibition brings together three stories, three postures of multidisciplinary artists from three different generations, from three different territories.

Born in Pointe-Claire, Johanne Bilodeau presents an installation composed of paintings and a platform where the viewer is invited to immerse himself in the world of an audio story. His research focuses on the restoration and preservation of ecosystems in urban and rural areas. His concern is to find visual strategies to challenge the viewer’s memory of the landscape.

Originally from Matane, Marise Fillion questions the visitor’s step in an immersive environment where she experiments a mixture of fine arts and multimedia: polewood, plaster base, video, audio and lighting. Through the concept of form-traject and the notion of appropriation, the artist transposes us into a poetic and polysensory universe.

Born in Montreal, Stéphanie Garofalo infiltrates an autofiction where she embodies her ideal artist model. His stationary installation includes a video, an audio track and a manifesto, an extract of which will be read publicly on the evening of the opening. Ironically, her narcissistic quest for identity led her to question the figure of the artist and the status of the creator: what is an artist today?

Throughout this journey, they have adopted the position of researcher-creator. With recent interdisciplinary tools in their pockets, they have explored multiple modes of visual expression and addressed social issues head-on.

We invite you to take part in our celebration.
Free admission. Welcome to all of you.
