I am so pleased that Torontonians (and their tourists) will have the chance to see in person a new iteration of the three-dimensional installation Au fil des connexions / Over Connections. It will be open to the public from September 7 to 24 at Alliance Française Toronto!
If you are in Toronto, you will have the chance to see new works and an installation designed to give you not only a visual, but also a tactile experience. You will be able to touch, even enter and become part of the installation by wearing the sculpture to see the nets as an extension of your body that expands into the space. The virtual cannot replace everything and I am happy to share this experience with the public. If you happen to stop by and take pictures or selfies, don't forget to use #overconnections so that I can see your experience with the installation.
My work will be featured in the two galleries of the cultural complex of the Alliance Française Toronto.
The first room is dedicated to the immersive installation and a body of work titled Networks. We are all connected to family, social and professional networks and to thousands of people on whom we depend for our most basic survival needs. These connections have always existed, but are even more palpable in a virtual world.
The second gallery will show work that has been going on for several years and is in continuity with the first theme. These works are inspired by the networks and ramifications found in winter nature and landscapes. Using dark thread on cotton canvas, this minimal process becomes more complex through the rhythms and cadences of the stitches and reveals a whole range of nuances in order to capture the visual poetry, the peace and the serenity that nordic landscapes bring.
