The Drawn Territories

Panache art actuel, Sept-Îles, 2017

Presented at the Village d’accueil de Rivière-Pentecôte, at the cultural center L’Alternative in Baie-Comeau and at the Salle L’Aquilon of the Louis-Ange-Santerre Library in Sept-Îles, Côte-Nord, Quebec.

This series of Indian ink drawings is the result of explorations carried out in the studio, using maps of the North Shore as a starting point, notably Lake Manicouagan, Mount Babel and Île René-Levasseur. By applying the tracing process, the tracings are developed to generate repetitive and varied patterns. Cartography is approached as a model of representation of the world. As a complement, a gestural process is added to express the circulatory movement giving access to this vast territory.

Micro-residence at the Village d’accueil de Rivière- Pentecôte, Côte-Nord, 2017

During the five days preceding the exhibition, I walk and photograph for the first time this landscape between the forest and the sea.
