Nicole Bauberger → Whitehorse, Yukon
For several years, she has worked on a series of paintings, producing one for every 50 km of the TransCanada Highway. At the Symposium, she will favour roads in the Charlevoix area.
Patrick Beaulieu → Orford, QC
These works are rooted in details gleaned by chance on trips crossing the border between Canada and the United States. At Baie-Saint-Paul, by changing the toponymy of the region, he will devise short itineraries to unreal destinations.
Camille Bernard-Gravel → Quebec City, QC
Phenomena inspire her projects in which nature acts as a lively ecosystem, linking together unstable elements. These interdependent kinetic sculptures will put forward the synergy of plant growth.
Eveline Boulva → Quebec City, QC
For several years, territory and landscape have been at the core of her practice. She will produce a diptych painting inspired by photographs taken from the window of a plane while flying over the St Lawrence River.
Samuel Breton → Quebec City, QC
His first animated films explored the graphic line and the poetry of objects. In the video installation Eskimo de Sorel, the traditional winter boot will playfully represent an igloo, or an ice flow, and will enable us to reinterpret the reality of First Nations people.
Geneviève Chevalier → Eastman, QC
Her process as an artist and a curator is concerned with natural, geographic and institutional spaces. Looking at the Sentier des caps de Charlevoix (a hiking trail in Charlevoix) and the representation of birds, she will create an installation about seasonal migrations.
Frédéric Cordier → Lausanne, Switzerland / Montreal, QC
On the subject of the container and the transportation of goods, he will produce in large-format linocuts prints, a harbour view of cranes, ships and machinery like so many motifs and textures.
Thibault Laget-ro → Grosrouvre, France
He contrasts the experience of victims of violence with that of those confronted with their media representation. After having given his attention to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Arab Spring and the war in Syria, he now will examine the subject of migrants.
Michèle Mackasey → Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Her work aims to develop a certain responsibility and collaborations based on a mix of people from various levels of society. For Quartier de Souhaits-chez-toit, she will invite the Symposium public to create a house while thinking of a specific homeless person.
Guillaume Adjutor Provost → Montreal, QC
He claims to represent the art of exhibiting. His project for Baie-Saint-Paul focuses on a collection of QSL cards, written traces of amateur radio broadcasts linked to truck-driver culture, from which he will derive psychedelic drawings.
Momar Seck → Geneva, Switzerland / Dakar, Senegal
He is interested in the remnants of consumption to which he gives a strong symbolic function. In the context of the Symposium, he will invite the public, particularly the children, to create small boats from various metallic containers and cans.
Anne-Sophie Turion → Pantin and Marseille, France
She examines private and collective stories. In Baie-Saint-Paul, she will try to make souvenirs for the tourist’s experience, transforming the places visited into individual commemorative settings.
