Burbs to Banlieues

Burbs to Banlieues is a Franco-Canadian multi-year project that takes place in the suburbs of Paris and Toronto. It explores links and differences between territories marked by layers of histories and dreams, in geographies where significant colonial histories and current immigration come into play. The project offers artists based in Canada and in France a context to develop new artworks in the other country. Their works will result from a series of residencies.

Sophie La Rosière

Sophie La Rosière by Iris Häussler

Häussler is interested in the fragile boundaries between fiction and reality. In her immersive installations, fictitious stories cross the line into reality through detailed character biographies and the material evidence of their obsessive lives and works. She also creates series of objects cast in wax, works that speak the language of moments frozen in time, of objects robbed of their functions to become artifacts under preservation and conservation while also subject to the vulnerability of the material encasing them.
