title : pourrait être fait

year: 2015

duration: one month

curator: marie perrault

project blog: https://pourraitetrefait.wordpress.com

pourrait être fait is a project which investigates (very briefly, just over the course of one month) the concerns of those who live in the regions of québec. taking the weekly newspaper “le charlevoisien” as my main source of information i chose a headline or a quote from the newspaper to then transcribe this text onto unprimed linen using acrylic paint. i was primarily interested in discovering how the current governments cuts (both provincial and federal) in the regions was affecting the life of those who live and work there. language, as performed –and as performing the reader, through difficulty of deciphering, through hierarchical placement (whether the charter of rights and freedoms, headline, or quote) was also a concern.
