Mélanie Martin. Can I Stop Being Worried Now?
Graduating Master's student in Visual and Media Arts program, UQAM
Mélanie Martin presents a playful look at the different personal and societal constructs that shape and constrict our behaviours. She explores the concept of shelter, with caves and bunkers that offer protection, isolation and introspection. The Can I Stop Being Worried Now? installation is a kind of corrugated cardboard refuge that visitors are invited to explore from the inside. In taking over the whole exhibition area the work redefines our usual perception of space.
