Performance and sound design by Maude Arès and Simon Labbé

The activations last around 1 hour.

An arrangement of dead, brown flowers, a green ram’s horn, blue rocks, pieces of drywall from a crumbling house, dull matte black ultra-resistant aluminum foil, purple clovers that peek through the holes of a baseball cap, a hardened piece of eraser. Throughout the installation, makeshift tools bring to life a miniature collection of fragmented materials. At once precious and hazardous, these elements depict a world where fragility and strength are one and the same.

*The Saturday, June 1 activation is presented as part of the OFFTA – live art festival programming, simultaneously with the performance À la racine by Marilou Craft and Chloé Savoie-Bernard.
