About The Artwork

Mon arbre à souhaits Installation 100 morceaux de papier Xuan découpés à la main dimensions variables Juillet 2017 Cette installation in situ est présentée pour la première fois dans le contexte du Musée Bruck. Depuis plusieurs mois, cette œuvre trottait dans ma tête, floue, lancinante et timide, jusqu’à ce qu’une de mes étudiantes m’envoie une photo d’un paysage japonais et là, tout s’est mis en place… les souvenirs de mon enfance chez ma grand-mère, la glycine sous laquelle je m’abritais l’été, et ce monde protégé qui était la cour où je jouais. Les motifs utilisés pour cette œuvre sont créés à partir de medium acrylique appliqué sur une feuille de plastique; je couvre la feuille d’une calligraphie abstraite, qui est la base des motifs que j’utilise pour jouer avec l’espace. C’est au cours de mon 4e séjour en Chine, en juillet 2017, que j’ai découpé mes papiers, suivant ces motifs abstraits. Mes journées ont donc été ponctuées de pliage de papiers et de manipulation d’X-acto, pour finalement revenir à Montréal avec une centaine de papiers que j’ai ensuite colorés.
