Pohanna Pyne Feinberg - Research residency

While Walking

September 27, 2014 - October 5, 2014

As part of its Field 2_Critical Space research residency project, 
DARE-DARE is please to welcome Pohanna Pyne Feinberg.

While Walking is a research project that explores walking as an artistic process and practice. How can walking contribute to the creative process? How can we understand walking as an art form? How does interaction with public space influence walking art practices? In what ways does the urban environment become a source of inspiration, distraction or perhaps intimidation? And, more specifically, what experiences do artists who are women encounter as they make art that involves walking the streets?

While Walking is an opportunity to learn from Montreal-based artists who walk as an aspect of their diverse art practices. Excerpts from recorded conversations with the artists will be shared in the format of an audio walk designed to enable the listener to reflect on the artists’ ideas while walking through the city.


This activity will take place during the Journées de la culture on Saturday, September 27th, 2014.

The departures will be made from DARE-DARE’s trailer office at 10:00 am + 1:00 pm.

Additional visits added during the first end of the week of October, on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th @ 1:00 pm.

The departures will be made from the trailer office of DARE-DARE.

Duration: 2 hours30 minutes     MP3 players supplied     12 places available by tour

Pohanna Pyne Feinberg (artist/educator/curator) walks regularly to open and calm her spirit. Her audio-visual work is propelled by the extraordinary in the ordinary, textures of impermanence, resonance, and compassion. Over the past 10 years, she has developed educational programs and taught for several arts and cultural organizations as well as educational institutions. In 2009, she created www.Inspire, a webzine with the mandate to increase awareness about community-based art in the Montreal region. In 2011, her curatorial project titled [in-tur-pri-tey-shuhnz] explored the intersections between contemporary art and oral history. She received a Masters degree in Art History from Concordia University and is pursuing doctoral research in Art Education with a focus on walking as creative process and aesthetic inquiry.

Arkadi Lavoie Lachapelle Entitled I Love You the Way You Hate, this project reinterprets the slogan “I love myself the way I am”. Well-used in marketing campaigns targeting women to sell products and ideologies related to well-being, that sentence often brushes off the question “Who do I love?”.

Geneviève Amyot Fear, especially its confrontation, is at the heart of Geneviève Amyot’s work and most of all in "Nous sommes beaucoup qui avons peur", published posthumous in 20031 by Éditions du Noroît. In this text, the author reveals the valves of the fear – of her personal fears and our common fears – inviting us to a meeting with ourselves, without the possibility of escape, to confront the repressed fear that contains us all.
