In November 2020, Anne-F Jacques began a residency at Maison Pierre-Chartrand. She created soundscapes across a pre-existing ecosystem, intervening in situations where objects and materials, plants and humans coexist and leave their mark on the use of a space. She documented ephemeral installations and performances, inaccessible due to current public health measures. Her work is now accessible until March 28.
“…the animate systems I assemble behave neither as machines, nor entirely like creatures, occupying a grey area between the two. Fragile, tired and absurd, they always seem to be on the verge of a breakdown or a catastrophe, and yet demonstrate a strange and persistent stubbornness.” – Anne-F Jacques
