À la racine
Galerie de l’UQAM
Performance by Chloé Savoie-Bernard and Marilou Craft
Presented in the context of OFFTA – live art festival, simultaneously with the performance L’algue flotte dans une rivière, amenée par le débit de l’eau, elle s’agrippe à la pierre, elle y reste longtemps by Maude Arès.
Marilou Craft and Chloé Savoie-Bernard were born the same year. They both spent their youth looking for their own reflection in the media and collecting model figures of similar-looking women. Now young adults, both feel sometimes trapped in a forced sorority, as mixed race identities often come with a common but uncharted background. Their encounter is one of distinct beings, which also reveals the common feeling of restraint brought upon marginalized bodies by structural power.
