res(is)ting / repos comme résistance – another iteration comes to a close

The project res(is)ting / repos comme résistance, hosted by Verticale—centre d’artistes in Laval QC, comes to its official close with the launch of a (micro)publication and a podcast.

The publication, designed by François Rioux, is a beautiful folded pamphlet that offers excerpts from this here blog I’ve been keeping (since 2016); a way to make visible the invisible experience of “doing nothing” (in particular during this cycle 4 of the project).

The podcast offers additional backstory and more about the surrounding context of this iteration of the “doing nothing” project and features an evocative audio experience put together by Frédéric Lavoie (artistic direction), Alexis Bellavance (technical direction), Emma-Kate Guimond (narration) and Oran Loyfer who did the intro and extro music.

Thank you Verticale for this amazing opportunity and for your support in continuing to program work that keeps challenging what art is, what it can do, where it can be found, and how it can be made (and un-made).

  1. Je connais cet endroit . Je suis née tout près du Commodore yacht club. J’y allais pour dessiner, pour réfléchir , sentir le changement des saisons. Je souhaite que la berge reste accueillante. Je ne sais pas l’état actuel des choses .


    1. Super! Je suis très intéressée de l’entendre! Je comprends tout à fait pourquoi; quel lieu inspirant. Il semble que la ville de Laval va devenir le propriétaire de ce lieu bientôt (non pas le Commodore). Merci pour ton mot.
