LES COURANTS | ce qui pousse, se défait, grouille encore – Anne-F Jacques
As part of our Slow Tech programming, Ada X presents Les courants, an introductory digital arts program for young people and families in Rivière-des-Prairies.
ce qui pousse, se défait, grouille encore
Anne-F Jacques and the Le Phare youth
ce qui pousse, se défait, grouille encore creates sound environments across existing ecosystems, intervening in spaces where objects and materials, plants and humans cohabit and leave traces of their use over time.
Between February and March 2020, some 15 young people participated in electronic art workshops with Anne-F Jacques at Le Phare in the Marie-Victorin HLM in Rivière-des-Prairies as part of the Les courants program. The participants learned how to make various sound devices using recycled electronics and found objects.
Then time stopped, and the project was put on hold…
While waiting to be able to meet with the participants once again and present the results of their collaboration, Anne-F has been creating sound installations at Maison Pierre Chartrand and sharing them with us via video. A window on a hidden world, which we invite you to discover here.
And if you’re in the neighborhood, hear ce qui pousse, se défait et grouille encore outside Maison Pierre Chartrand!
