Myriam Jacob-Allard’s project Un coin du ciel uses an installation and video to explore representations of “the mother” in Quebec’s country & western culture. Through the use of iconography and deconstruction of texts from popular songs, she explores the gap between smaller and larger narratives to better understand the distortion caused by these fragmentations. These stories allow us to envisage the construction of identities transmitted from mother to daughter and to consider the concept of lineage in culture, the possibilities for legacy or loss from one generation to the next.
