Performative scenes where body and space meet

All around, an immersive installation by Jacynthe Carrier, features conversations between various remnants of performative scenes that were created between 2019 and 2021. These works, taken from distinct moments unfolding along the shores of the Gulf and the River of St. Lawrence River, meet and intercommunicate. The exhibition brings together video, sound and photographic works that retrace different collective performances created by the artist with the help of citizens and other contributors in Gaspésie, Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Kamouraska.

Jacynthe Carrier creates performative scenes where body and space meet. Through this process, she questions the different ways in which humans cohabit, and creates visual poems that evoke new ecologies. By working with the living and the image, she observes our relationship to the environment and to each other, our ways of being in the world, of creating, and of belonging. To create her living tableaux, she invites the ephemeral communities she creates to inhabit places through different forms of physical and symbolic presence.



Born in 1982, Jacynthe Carrier is a Québec artist who explores, through video and photography, the relationship between the body and the environment. Since 2008, her work has been in solo and group exhibitions, including at the Musée d’art de Joliette, the MAC VAL (Musée d’art contemporain de Val-de-Marne, in France), the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, and in exhibitions in France, Mexico, and the United States. Her works can be found in several private and museum collections. Carrier was nominated for the Sobey Awards for the Arts in 2013 and 2017 and was the recipient of the Prix Pierre-Ayot in 2012 and the Prix Videre Création in 2015. She lives in Québec City with her family on the banks of the Akiawenhrahk (St-Charles) River and has been the co-director of VU, centre de diffusion et de production de la photographie, since 2015.
