ExHIBITIONS

Exile, loss, uprooting, and rebuilding are themes that have inspired numerous artists. Art helps many people to get through such difficult times. Here are some artistic works that broach the topic from a dreamlike perspective.

Most tents have no particular activities from 6 pm to 7 pm so you can visit them freely !

 

CONFERENCE ET EXPOSITIONS Pascale Bourguignon

"Des masques pour contrer l’indifférence"
PASCALE BOURGUIGNON
TEMPO #1

In partnership with Maisonnée, which has been welcoming immigrants and refugees for 35 years in Montreal, Pascale Bourguignon has offered artistic workshops to young refugees between the ages of 12 and 16. On this occasion, they made papier-mache masks which they then painted. Tamila Hachemi, a youth worker at La Maisonnée, and several volunteers also took part in these workshops. The purpose of these workshops was to provide youth with a platform for expression, a way to account for the overwhelming experience of uprooting and to allow them to express the conflicting feelings that go through them in this imposed ordeal. The masks are accompanied by texts written by the young people. They explain their approach and the meaning that these masks have for them. Pascale Bourguignon is a contemporary artist working on the links between individuals, the displacement of populations and the place we occupy in our environment.

TEMPO #1

Installation of a map of Quebec showing the distribution of immigrant reception and integration organizations in Quebec. This map illustrates that organizations are everywhere in the province.

 

camille havas"MON PÈRE CE HONGROIS"
CAMILLE HAVAS
TEMPO #6

Artist Camille Havas presents excerpts of a book written by her father, who left Hungary in 1956 for France following the Hungarian Revolution. Born in France, she too immigrated, to Canada. Ms. Havas uses images of trees and roots to illustrate her father’s words. An illustrator, dancer and circus performer, Camille Havas practices a multidisciplinary art, creating works based on a message, objects, projections and simple movements. Look for the third volume of her book during the Expozine event next November 24. The exhibition will come to life as a performance on Sunday from 2 to 3 p.m.

 

LOGO Centre Culturel Libano Canadien

"BEYROUTH, VILLE DU PHOENIX"
CENTRE CULTUREL LIBANO-CANADIEN (CCLC)
TEMPO #7

As part of a series titled “Une Recette, Une Ville, Une Histoire”, the Centre Culturel Libano-Canadien (CCLC) is pleased to present its exhibition Beyrouth, ville du Phénix. One recipe: “Brûle tes doigts”, which is the name given to a vegetarian recipe (“Horak Osbao” in Arabic). One city: Beyrouth, reborn in the 90s after a quarter-century of war. One story: discover it in the Tempo tent during Cuisine ta ville. The CCLC’s mission is to provide Quebecers and Canadians multicultural exchanges and experiences that foster human fulfillment and empowerment. This helps integrate communities into the broader Canadian society.

 

Roxham Visuel Promo Horizontal 3"ROXHAM - exposition"
MICHEL HUNEAULT
TEMPO #8

Photographer Michel Huneault documents the interception of asylum seekers crossing from the United States into Canada and their confused quest for a safe place to stay. In early 2017, the number of asylum seekers along Roxham Road spiked. This quiet path between the U.S. and Canada suddenly became the main point of entry for migrants entering Canada on foot. On the photos, the asylum seekers appear as anonymous silhouettes. The textures reference another series of photographs, taken during the 2015 migrant crisis in Europe. Accompanied every day from 5 to 10 p.m. by journalist and mediator Sophie Mangado.

 

ET POUR DEMAIN jeljeli"AU CENTRE DES DONNÉES"
OSAMA JELJELI
TEMPO #8

We are bombarded by statistics on the status of migrants, systematically released by the media. This data is consistently used in an erroneous or incomplete manner to disinform or to stoke fear. Au centre des données is a series of posters presented as an investigation that deciphers the news in order to debunk the myths. Using graphic tools, it sets out certain figures in order to encourage debate and discussion. These numbers are presented simply to restore a human dimension to the barrage of information and to counteract the constant stereotypical, often degrading, representations of migrants, helping us understand that the world is not the victim of some barbaric invasion.

ATSA ET LES ENFANTS DE LA CLASSE DE MARIEBELLE LECLERC DE L’ÉCOLE BARTHÉLÉMY VIMONT
TEMPO #9

The intervention Le Temps d’une Soupe goes to school to get students talking about various social issues. The students chatted about how their differences and similarities are perceived and experienced at school, and will be throughout their lives. Discussions were held in groups and later in pairs, and followed by the taking of poetic portraits.

 

 

denise campillo"MARCHE DES SAISONS"
DENISE CAMPILLO
TEMPO #9

Our future is endangered by climate change, which accentuates the worst experiences of humanity (death, suffering, war, exile...). How does one approach this subject? My questioning, which involves environmental activism, expresses itself in action, in writing, but also in painting. Citizen, immigrant, mother, grandmother and painter, I present here some paintings from a series entitled The March of the Seasons. My work is inspired by nature as well as by other artistic fields (photography, literature, music, dance). The canvases, accompanied by a short explanatory text, invite us to reflect on appearances and the complexity of the stakes. The passage of the seasons, and the place of humans in their environment, punctuate the creation of these paintings. The whole project is not meant to be catastrophic, but rather a call for reflection, solidarity and action.

 

Elena et Alina

"RACINES CROISÉES"
PAUL TOM ET MÉLISSA LEFEBVRE
TEMPO #10

Exclusive premiere of the visual exhibition Racines croisées at Cuisine ta ville. A photographic exhibition, an audio podcast and a short-form video, Racines croisées is the fruit of an intergenerational encounter between a class of students and some seniors, two groups that likely would not have crossed paths otherwise. Each photograph is enhanced by a soundtrack. Visitors can enter the intimacy of the participants, who share their dreams, sorrows, daily lives, and more. Paul Tom and Mélissa Lefebvre also invite you to the screening of their film Baggages, on Thursday, May 9 at 7:30 p.m. The screening will be followed by a discussion.

"THÉÂTRE - J'IRAIS MIGRER CHEZ VOUS"
TATIANA BURTIN + PASSEURS DE VOIX
saTURDAY 2PM - tempo #10

A blend of theatrical fiction and live testimonials, J'irai migrer chez vous offers the spectator a unique experience amidst migrants going through a forced displacement. A singular sensory laboratory in which artists from different backgrounds mingle with spectators to experience something at times both painful and enlightening. The spectator is invited to follow a chorus of migrants through a series of stand-alone scenes and is constantly required to interact with his/her environment, individually or as part of a group, to seize those objects that remain at his/her disposal, and to decide where his/her steps will lead. The Passeurs de Voix collective examines the big societal issues through the lens of theatre, with artists or witnesses whose voices are rarely, if ever, heard on Québec stages.

 

Les Interpretes V MOCKLER"Performance - Les Interprètes"
VÉRONICA MOCKLER
thursday 8:30pm - TEMPO #6

Veronica Mockler was a resident artist at Jeanne-Mance High School (CSDM) in Montreal’s Plateau-Mont-Royal borough for six weeks. During her time there, she worked with 16 teenagers who had recently arrived in Quebec. Together, they produced video performances on the daily interests and concerns of the students. Teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17 addressed their personal reality through performance, video, oral history and conceptual art frameworks. This work aims to make its audience aware of the actual thoughts and discourses of young people who have immigrated. In this reflective project, Veronica Mockler goes against documentary tendencies that gratuitously victimize and exploit the narratives of individuals who have undergone migration. Les Interprètes is about how these teens, and by extension others who have undergone migration, are not just the sum total of their difficult experiences. The work exemplifies the control these teens rightly have over their depiction.

 

 

Martine Fidele"LECTURE ET DISCUSSION - ÉCORCHÉES VIVANTES"
MARTINE FIDÈLE
SATURDAY 3:30PM - TEMPO #7

Montrealer Martine Fidèle is an author and actor. Born in Haiti, and a former artistic resident at the Royal Saltworks at Arc-et-Senans near Besançon, she has authored three books, including Double Corps.

LILIA BITAR Liviu Dospinescu

"PERFORMANCE - Offrande((s)) et Délivrance((s)) d'APRÈS LES SYRIENNES DES MERS"
LILIA BITAR avec la famille Ataya
saTURDAY 5PM - tempo #10 

In the colonial time-space continuum marked by war and exodus, islands become places of refuge where tragic events can be reappropriated. But islands are also metaphors, havens in which memory takes shelter from violence. Similarly, the spoken word finds sanctuary in poetry, which revives meaning and creates a language where relationships can thrive. Meanwhile, the sea plays the role of an imposter: it is the site of shipwreck, of the pervasive death that fills the streets and permeates the cities, infiltrating homes and subjugating their inhabitants.  

 

 

 

 

sanchez"DANSE - MANOS DE MUJER"
ARIANA PIRELA SANCHEZ
saTURDAY 3:30PM - tempo #10

"Manos de mujer" is a dance solo that speaks of the fragility and strength of a woman. It is a dialogue between the sensitive woman and the warrior woman. The performance is inspired by the importance and strength of women in matriarchal societies and the political and economic inequalities they experience. Ariana is inspired by her immediate surroundings: both political and environmental issues as well as human relations. Her writings and dance work are developed around dance and its impact in social practices. The moving body allows her to reflect and embody this with precision.

feuille dechiree"PERFORMANCE - AVANT QUE LA DERNIÈRE FEUILLE NE TOMBE"
LE COLLECTIF FEUILLE DÉCHIRÉE
SUNDAY 12:30PM - TEMPO #6

! Le Collectif Feuille déchirée is comprised of artists who first met during the Post-Marginal event promoted by Toronto’s Modern Times in partnership with Diversité Artistique Montréal (DAM). “Avant que la dernière feuille ne tombe” is the collective’s first work. It takes the form of letters addressed to our grandmothers. From this period—our childhood—when the impressions gathered by our senses were the focus of our attention, we have held on to certain souvenirs: crunchy, fragrant, delicious, unique and universal ones. We cook and partake of the dishes of our grandmothers from here and elsewhere. Another world, another time, today’s emotions, and memories of the past all shape this story. We open a door in order to question our grandmothers, and we invite you, at the end of the performance, to scribble down a note to them on a sheet of paper. We will then use these as inputs to draw a new world map, one based on our stories!

 

Lady Silva"MUSIQUE - LADY SYLVA"

Bagages gives a platform to teens from Paul-Gérin-Lajoie-d’Outremont High School who are newly arrived in Montreal. We discover their stories of migration and integration through drama workshops, theatrical scenes and interviews where they open up to us. They speak of an “elsewhere” and a “before”, which become a “here” and a “now. ” They may be young, but they speak of their experiences with impressive insight, emotion that will melt even the most hardened of hearts, and a disarming realness. Featured in collaboration with TCRI.

  

FILM HOTEL SPLENDIDE"HOTEL SPLENDID"
Mauro Bucci, 2016 (Italie)
FRIDAY 8:30PM - TEMPO #7
FIFEQ SELECTION

Italy | 90 min | VOSTA HOTEL SPLENDID is an intimate and collective representation of life in a community of migrants from the African coasts living in a centre for asylum seekers. It is an unprecedented glimpse into the daily experiences and operations of an Italian hotel transformed into an emergency refugee camp. The film recounts the migrants’ dramatic journey to reach Europe, undergoing violence and abuse along the way, and the path the asylum seekers must adhere to from the moment they enter the camp through to the end of the evaluation process.

SATURDAY 11AM - TEMPO #7
FIFEQ SELECTION

Belgium | 63 min | Bilingual version. A polyphony of men, stories and atmospheres from the Calais Jungle, as it came to be called. A sensory journey, shifting from intimate situations to the execution of survival strategies. A film of deception, passion, fire, solidarity, hope and limbo. Sharing the daily lives of the migrants during numerous visits over the duration of the Jungle, with an often participatory approach (images and script partially produced by the migrants themselves), director Laurent Van Lancker’s film is both political and poetic, offering a rare, inward perspective on the migrants’ social life and capacity for adapting.

SATURDAY 7PM - TEMPO #7

Trajectoires is a hybrid videographic installation inspired by documentary cinema. It follows the journey of seven residents of one of Canada’s most multiethnic neighbourhoods, Parc-Extension, which is changing at a fascinating pace. I interviewed them about their individual paths and what brought them to this neighbourhood, and their lives now. The work takes a critical look at the evolution of the neighbourhood and its gentrification. What impact will the construction of the Université de Montréal’s campus, 38 football fields in size, and the 10,000 people who will visit it each week have on this landlocked neighbourhood and its majority immigrant population?

Jef, a fortysomething Canadian, is at a crossroads in his life. His most recent life experiences have distanced him from his deepest desire: to fight for a fairer society. In his quest to reconnect with his ideals of social justice, Jef finds inspiration in Colombia, a country where he grew up and for which he has an enduring love. With his uncle Arturo and cousin Sergio, he sets out to travel from Tulua to Santa Marta, recollecting phases of his life in the process. During the journey, he will remember those persons who inspired him and who, in their own way, make the world a better, friendlier place. This adventure will help him reconnect with his personal values and find his own way to contribute to the development of a society based on genuine human values.

Samy-Jade became interested in young newcomers when she started working as a specialized educator in a school in Chomedey, Laval. This interest turned into a veritable vocation during the massive arrival of Syrians in 2016. She gave herself a mandate: to bring meaningful experiences to them and listen to what these young people had to say about their life journey, and to capture everything in a documentary and web capsules to be made available on social media. At that moment, the Dans Leurs Yeux project was born. The project was highlighted as one of the innovative projects at the CSLAVAL Volunteer Gala in 2017. The director and some of the subjects in the documentary Dans Leurs Yeux participated in screenings at the “Forum Jeunesse: Ensemble nous sommes le monde” youth forum and at several schools, training centres, conferences and community events.

Austria | 75 min | VOSTA - Despite having lost everything, two Yazidi women, Hedil and Naam, are struggling for a humane life for their families. During the Yazidi massacre by the terrorist organisation Islamic State, they were forced to leave their homeland. They have ultimately found protection in a refugee camp. Their situation seems hopeless, stuck between the dictatorship of ISIS and their dream destination: Europe. What The Wind Took Away takes a deeply poetic approach to the very personal stories of these Yazidi women, and a lyrical journey through their everyday lives in the refugee camp.

This movie offers an overview of her life through the visit of her house, a « Ginger bread house » where every corner is full of memories. This is the portrait of an endearing woman showing a face of Haiti that we know too little.
