School-Garden______Territory

Residency at Centre de formation générale des adultes des Rives-du-Saguenay, Chicoutimi, March 11 to June 6, 2024

With the students enrolled at center 216, I am pursuing evolving artistic explorations based on the observation and expression of living forms. The productions are related to a double hydrographic map of the Saguenay region, located in the center of my studio, in order to imagine a new sensitive relationship with the territory. Part of the process is also inspired by the horticulture class. In addition, as an extension of their annual participation in the work of the Solidar farms, the students are producing a series of drawings on site relating to the growing of vegetables. This collection of works will form the basis of an exhibition presented in the Solidar stand, then in a gallery.

This project is part of the “Une école accueille un artiste ou un écrivain” component of the Quebec Ministry of Education’s Culture.
