Edith Brunette
From October 1st 2014 to December 31st 2014
Résidence de recherche art3/OPTICA - Valence (France)

Observing language as revelatory of the power relationships driving society, Edith Brunette is interested in the discourse practised by governing institutions and by those who challenge them. She provokes acts of speech on the part of various societal actors in order to prompt reflection on our perception of the world and on the means of collectively appropriating its representations. During her residency at art3 (Valence), the artist will focus her interrogations on French corporation S.T. Dupont, examining its discourses on beauty, culture, and freedom through the products the company manufactures and their mode of production.

The exchange residency research program art3/OPTICA receives support from the ministère des Relations internationales, de la Francophonie et du Commerce extérieur du Québec, of the Consulat général de France à Québec as part of the 64ième Commission permanente de coopération franco-québécoise, and the Rhône-Alpes region.

*Discussion with Edith Brunette at art3 (Valence) Novembre 26 at 6 PM*
Edith Brunette will present her research conducted during her residence in France. This presentation will be the opportunity to discover her past work as well as her current project on the French luxury industry. Between the shine of objects, icons and art foundations, and the anonymity of a precarious workforce, the artist questions her own place in a system that can either accept and reject her.
