Exhibition at gallery La Guilde, in Montreal. 2021.
Series of drawings, collages and paper weavings.
The pieces in the exhibition Commencer par le bord. Premier cahier are inspired by basketry. I refer to the edges of baskets, which are called lips or borders. I translated these openings to the loom and then worked them flat.
I imagine them as drawings-weavings. Of body-containers.
Their titles take the form of dates, entries in an invented notebook. The title Beginning at the Edge. First notebook. presumes a continuation.
Flax paper. Abaca paper. China ink. Graphite.
Weaving, drawing, collage.
