Marie-Claude Gendron. Nos terres louables
Graduating master's student in visual and media arts (MFA), UQAM
Artist: Marie-Claude Gendron
May 26, 2016 - May 30, 2016
The Galerie de l’UQAM presents Nos terres louables by Marie-Claude Gendron, graduating master’s student in visual and media arts (MFA), UQAM. For five days, the artist will occupy the observation deck overlooking the site of the open pit mine located in Malartic, Abitibi-Témiscamingue.
By her steady and continuous presence on site, Marie-Claude Gendron wishes to highlight citizen engagement and resistance movements in the face of ambient stagnation. Visitors will discover this “act of immobility,” which follows a series of similar interventions beginning in 2013, as it will be transmitted simultaneously at the Galerie de l’UQAM, from May 26 to 30.
The issues raised by the project will be questioned by the essayist Alain Deneault, artist Michelle Lacombe, author Alexis Desgagnés, art collective AOOS and activist Dominique Bernier in a multidisciplinary event presented on June 5, 2016, in collaboration with the OFFTA – live arts festival.
Live screening of the performative action at the Galerie de l’UQAM: May 26-30, 2016, 12-6 pm.
Multidisciplinary event: June 5, 2016, 1 pm., as part of OFFTA – live art festival
