Noeuds d’écoute Listening Knots by Karen Trask

“Nœuds d’écoute Listening Knots includes text-based installations, a video projection and a continuous performance inspired by Virginia Woolf’s, The Waves. Published in 1931, she called it her “play-poem”. Imagine myself as Virginia Woolf with a camera and a desire to play with bodies of text, the human body, the tide, the ocean and the land. This thought guided the making of the work during a two-year residency at the Université de Moncton, Moncton and Mount Allison University, Sackville, New Brunswick. Students, friends, the ocean and the land were active participants.”

– Karen Trask


Multiscalar Geography by Catherine Sylvain 

Playing with scale, point of view and number, the installation titled Multiscalar Geography presents the accumulation of hundreds of delicate pieces of porcelain mounted on walls. Alone, grouped, spaced or aligned, these pieces become visual signs: sequences of more or less dense points forming sometimes lines, sometimes masses. The pieces can be observed individually, in relation to each other, or from a global perspective. In order for this variable geometry reading to take place, the viewer will have to play back and forth in order to perceive the work as a whole and in detail.


I Almost Didn’t Feel You Leave/We Forgot To Look by Sophie Sabet in residency at OBORO

I Almost Didn’t Feel You Leave/We Forgot To Look is a multi-channel video installation that explores the desire for communication and compassion within the fragmented diasporic family. The installation consists of a compilation of vignettes that have been captured throughout 2018.
