DU03 - Paul Bradley and Dominic Jean 2
Thursday, Nov. 27 at 7:30 PM
Painter and storyteller Bradley tells us his stories through plastic symbols under the pseudonym Pò. His “deferred performances,” recorded in various media, result in a narrative of our times. A percussionist for more than 20 years, Jean has had numerous projects to his credit prior to his current involvement with DUO3. A mix of pre-programmed arpeggios and live performance will accompany the creation of a canvas on the theme of freedom of expression and of free association, ideals at the very core of DUO3.

Thursday, Nov. 27 at 7:30 PM
The works of Marie-Claude Pratte have been shown in Quebec, Vancouver, Strasbourg and New York City. In a live setting, she will create a series of societal portraits inspired by articles 6 and 7 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to expose the injustice and repression that is part of the reality of the homeless. The acrylic-on-wood images deal with prejudice and the workings of a system driven by power and profit. This new series of paintings is the latest installment in a corpus of work begun in early 2000.

Wednesday, Nov. 26 from 4:00 to 10:00 PM

VIA is a close collaborative effort of Massimo Guerrera, Sylvie Cotton and Corine Lemieux. It focuses on the visible and invisible aspects of sharing one same creative space. VIA proposes a mobile action centred around face-to-face encounters among participants. Dialogue will be sparked through the device of a convenience store supplying free goods both real and poetic. Through these spontaneous, unforeseen encounters, the artists of VIA hope to foster a heartfelt discussion on the nature of freedom and on the negative and positive aspects of homelessness.

Karen Spencer 8
The public can meet the artist Thursday and Saturday during lunch.
Through her artistic explorations, Karen Elaine Spencer seeks to deepen her understanding of the ephemeral aspects of the human condition. Her creative approach is based on our relation with time and with our fellow man, and her work is an attempt to give meaning to the more banal aspects of existence and infuse them with a profoundly poetic dimension. Karen holds a Master’s degree in Visual Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal. She will hand out postcards bearing the inscription “où je suis n’est pas qui je suis” (where I am does not define who I am”) in order to foster positive dialogue.
