From July 26 to September 2, 2018
Painting and installation work
Sunday, July 29 from 2 pm to 4 pm
Johanne Bilodeau, a multi-disciplinary artist and author, is a proud mixed-blood, with a native and European heritage. For many years, social ecology has been the heart of her artistic approach. Restoration of natural ecosystems and the preservation of cultural landscapes nourish her research.
The exhibit L’Invisible traversée finds its source within the man-made landscapes of the Fjord du Saguenay in Québec. This region, well explored by the artist, will become the witness of a funeral voyage during which the artist will be the guide. The water of the fjord will be the last resting place of a close parent. The artist’s visual presentation will bring forward the ecological interrelationships in this funeral story. Nature, key to the story, will reveal a native identity through the landscape representation.
L’Invisible traversée offers a unique corpus of 16 works of art and one installation. All will transport you in the past, present and future, becoming one entity: water, fresh and salty at the same time.
Living in Sherbrooke, Johanne Bilodeau, graduated from the L’Université du Québec in Montréal in Fine Arts (1997) and from l’Université de Sherbrooke en Pratiques artistiques actuelles (2015). Her work can be found in public and private collections.
The Gallery is open every day, from 10 am to 5 pm.
