Marie-Line Laplante I draw sentences from grammar books. Each time I open a grammar book I am stuck by the italic and bold type sentences used as grammatical illustrations. I often set aside the rules of the book and become obsessed by the lost sense of the sentences so sacrificed for grammatical purposes.

Chloé Beaulac I want DARE-DARE’s trailer to be perceived as a pit stop on a journey to nowhere. I chose excerpts from my personal travels on the roads and highways of Quebec, captured moments that seemed to me to be capable of reinventing the trailer’s function.
