Micro-residency at La Halte - Lire entre les lignes

Janick Burn

Author, curator and artist Janick Burn invites you to the DARE-DARE offices to take part in Lire entre les lignes, a reading and writing workshop arising from her micro-residency at La HALTE.

Saturday, December 9, 1 pm - 3 pm
2515 Delisle Street, Montreal

During her micro-residency at La HALTE, Janick Burn explored her experience of reading and what lies on its periphery. To pursue her research, the artist proposes a reading and writing workshop to observe, explore and collectively reflect on different strategies for investing the off-field through the experience of reading. For example, we'll be looking at how reading can enable us to think about space outside the text, and even influence our ways of being. These questions will be addressed through an open and subjective approach of the artistic practice.

The workshop lasts around two hours, and consists of individual exercises, sharing and relaxed discussion. No special experience or preparation is required. Just bring your writing material !

Her work as an artist has been seen in several performance events and exhibition venues, including Galerie de l'Université de Montréal (2020), Plein sud (Longueuil, 2019) and Musée d'art de Rouyn-Noranda (2019).
