Past Projects

MARION LESSARD From one word and its definition, Marion Lessard forms the poetical anagram of another word and its definition, which then take the place of the official ones, and so on, indefinitely, in a long chain of subversion. The aim is both poetic and playful: to insert within the Reference some Irreverence, to agitate the means of meaning. At the end of this extensive project, a whole new dictionary will materialize, which will yet be the same (understood as the sum of its letters).

VOX-POP "Survival Kit" and finissage From May 22 to 29, 2017, call and leave me a message on my voice mail at 438-763-0112. Tell me about your survival kit. What is it designed for? Is it material or immaterial, made up of objects or ideas? What type of survival does this kit respond to? Also, finissage on Wednesday, May 31, 2017, starting at 6 pm at DARE-DARE.

Watching the Apple Trees Blossom (le début est la fin d’un cycle continu) And what about bringing this quest into an art context? The opportunity to embark on this slippery, if not contradictory task (that of Doing Nothing) within the frame of DARE-DARE’s mandate became an instance of prolonged embodied research into the more imperceptible areas of art-making and artistic process. Exploring the invisible, liminal spaces in art has been a long-standing preoccupation of mine, and The Sanctimonious Sect of Nothing Is Sacred became an invaluable container, and occasion, within which to delve even more deeply into this burgeoning area of performative practice.

TALKING ABOUT NOTHING WITH... Sylvie Tourangeau “What are the ways in which free time infiltrates our body? Free time: a notion… a sensation… a parallel universe… a practice… an SOS…”. Revisiting her residency project titled Temps libre, carried out two years ago at 3e impérial artist-run centre in Granby, QC, Sylvie is proposing a collective moment of free time at DARE-DARE.

Nothing In Nothing With Nothing (Not Even a Computer!) Is it possible to create a space of Nothing, of rest and interval – smack dab in the middle of one’s day and one’s daily life? I am inviting those who are interested, to accompany me in taking a REAL break, in the Space of Resistance – a designated internet- & screen-free zone inside the student café, L’Exode. at the Cégep du Vieux Montréal.
