Commencer par le bord. Premier cahier.

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.
