first runApril 1, 2019 - December 30, 2020
In order to carry out our artistic programming, which will run from April 1st, 2019 to March 31, 2020, DARE-DARE is proposing this year a mode of action by pairing creators rather than the traditional call for projects. The center is motivated by creative risk-taking and hopes to see the emergence of new works/interventions that would be the result of hybrid collaborations between artists and/or researchers from all fields.
DUOLOGIE consists in forming original tandems, to stimulate creativity by this pairing and by the richness of the meeting of the sensitivities and the singularity of the research approaches put in dialogue. The committee will form the duos from the candidates' research fields.
Our plan is clear: make explosive cocktails overwhelming of beauty, finesse and intensity.
Our mission is to explore, question and evolve contemporary art practices, spaces and modes of dissemination and to promote their democratization and accessibility. The DUOLOGIE programming will be expanded over two consecutive years, the first cycle consists of the following twinning:
Jennifer Alleyn's interdisciplinary practice takes the form of films, videos, installations and photographs. Since the late 1990s, we have seen her work regularly in Quebec and abroad. The exploration of the relationship between reality and fiction appears implicitly in her research. She is also interested in the creative process and she made it the subject of several projects. Her works have been awarded in major festivals, but also disseminated by major Quebec institutions. After L’atelier de mon père and Dix fois Dix, in 2018, she created the film Impetus, which intersects with self-fiction and cinema-truth. For this film, which pushes the boundaries of the hybrid form, she receives the Prize Création 2019 awarded by l’Observatoire du cinéma au Québec and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of the University of Montreal for "her exceptional contribution to Quebec cinematography. ". She holds a bachelor's degree from Concordia University (1991). She lives and works in Montreal.
Raphaëlle de Groot
Raphaëlle de Groot is a Quebec artist who lives and works between Montreal and Orsigna, Italy. Her works have been presented over the Canadian and international scene for more than twenty years in numerous exhibitions and events including Paris Nuit Blanche, Momenta | Image Biennial in Montreal, also the San Diego Art Institute, the Venice Biennale and the Cultural Festival of Mayo in Guadalajara. Her artistic practice is being developed around the notions of mobility and meeting. Interdisciplinary and performative by nature, it emphasizes the process, duration, participation and collaboration of individuals and communities. Raphaëlle graduated from the School of Visual and Media Arts at the University of Quebec in Montreal (MA, 2007), and she received several distinctions including the Sobey Prize for the Arts in 2012.
Anne Bérubé: "The way I "walk", how I move forward and how I explore life in this world takes in my opinion a "polyphonic" dimension. Performer, researcher, author, professor, activist... I walk in zigzag on multiple roads, passing from one to the other, going by side roads where I go, foraging. Since 2007, I work with the collective TouVA (Sylvie Tourangeau, Victoria Stanton, Anne Bérubé) to think about modes of performative actions. This performative, we have approached, from observations to actions and not without humor, as a sensory faculty to acquire : a 7th sense, which we have made the title of a book published jointly in 2017 by Sagamie and M:ST."
Sarah Chouinard-Poirier is an artist and a worker. She works in care and care for her work.
Nady Larchet makes great use of new technologies and also makes her own machines that serve as tools or presentation devices. Sound is an important aspect of her research, as well as the technological contribution she uses and questions at the same time. It examines the notions of questioning and demonstrates the impact that certain social, political, economic, ecological and technological developments have on the human and his environment. In her recent work, she has been interested in the presence of waves, signals and particles in suspension in our environment, as well as the impacts they have on us, while at the same time looking at the responsibility of the human facing these invisible presences.
Interdisciplinary, Stéphanie Nuckle combines performative art, installation, drawing, printed art as well as methods of alteration and diversion of everyday objects. Originally from Laval, she has a particular sensitivity to the problems of the suburbs, the city and the development of art in her community. Her projects therefore focus on different types of human interactions with the territory, taking into account language, collective memory, environment, housing and cartography as subjects for research and experimentation. Between city and suburbs, this is through discrete interventions that she tries to activate the public space and "non-places", during the time needed for a walk, a route, or even an occupation.
