Présentation de Gaëlle Choisne | Gaëlle Choisne's Presentation

*Presentation:: Thursday May 22 (7PM)*
Résidence de recherche jeune création, Montréal-Valence 2014

At the end of her residency, Gaëlle Choisne will present her research results carried out in Montreal. Graduate of the École supérieure nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (2013), this young French artist of Haitian origin is interested in the notion of displacement, the absence of traces, colonial histories, and the Haitian diaspora. Her practice offers new reconstructions, micro-stories related to silent History traces. At the intersection of sculpture and photography, her installations promote a living relationship with material and waste.

She will conduct a discussion regarding her research for an experimental film between Haiti, Montreal and elsewhere. From the zombie figure as a likely symptomatic scenario of political unrest in Haiti or as a starting point to explain a long Western stigma, she attempts, with an intuitive approach, to unravel some aspects – Jean-Price Mars, Carl Brouard, guides of the musée colonial de Moulin-sur-Mer, René Depestre, Frantz Voltaire, Carmen Brouard, Meli-Melo, Wikipedia, I walked with a zombie, La Minustah, Les Griots, Youtube, Françoise Forêt, La Maison d'Haïti, The Rainbow and the Serpent, Laennec Hurbon, Allo la police, Arnold Antonin, l'île magique, L'arbre véritable...
