PROVOKE | FLUID STATES: BETWEEN THE HARDNESS OF MAKING AND THE DELICACY OF BLUSHING

Maude Arès and Massimo Guerrera approach time as a matter of practice. Deriving from an invitation from the B-312 Gallery to highlight its 30 years, the artists have chosen to collaborate in a ‘living’ installation production. With sculptures that unite found objects and raw materials (wood, clay and oil), the artists reflect on time while questioning the life span of the material and durability of domestic objects with a critical eye on consumerism and the political responsibility for waste. Their creative process ensues in front of the public during the performative encounters. In collaboration with the B-312 Gallery and le Conseil des arts de Montréal

KARA SKYLLING
THEY TOUCH NOT TOUCHING

Kara Skylling’s geometric drawings, delicate and precise, reveal a sensibility that goes beyond form. The lines are subtle yet complex; they overlap and avoid each other, highlighting negative space. By restoring its often overlooked significance, the artist reflects on the notions of connection, love and absence.

OUTDOOR EXHIBITION: LAND BACK

Contemporary Native Art Biennial

With the First Family series (2019), Carrie Allison uses beadwork to represent native medicinal flowers. These pieces summarize the repetitive and intensive meditative practice used by the artist to develop connections with medicinal plants.

In her performance, Vigil – The Land Remembers (2022), Julia Rose Sutherland marks the ground with an anonymous scar, a hole in the landscape as a place of opening. In this space, she gives hommage to the North American Indigenous women missing or murdered. These places become respectful memorials and platforms for honest, open and authentic discussions.

L’ORCHESTRE MÉTROPOLITAIN: PAHUDS FRENCH MELODIES

At a time when women weren’t typically considered composer material, Louise Farrenc and Cécile Chaminade triumphed against all odds.

A young Debussy pays homage to the great French composers of his time.

During the pandemic, she began to explore her creativity and fulfiled her childhood dream of creating miniatures! Already, her work has been featured in magazines such as the “DollsHouse World” and “DollsHouse & Miniature Scene”. Making miniatures and dioramas allows her to create a world of various architectures and environments that only exist in her mind!
