Conversation: Amélie Laurence Fortin & Didier Morelli

Fonderie Darling is pleased to invite you to a public conversation between artist Amélie Laurence Fortin and independent curator and critic Didier Morelli. The event will be an opportunity to discuss the themes of the exhibition Yarn of a Short Night presented in the spring of 2023. This exhibition is the culmination of a cycle of work that questions the way we position ourselves in relation to different orders of magnitude, dealing in particular with the notions of exploration, time and territory. In a spirit of reflection and speculative dialogue, Amélie Laurence Fortin and Didier Morelli invite you to take part in a discussion of these ideas during a period of exchange that will follow the conversation. 

The event will take place in French. 

Amélie Laurence Fortin lives and works between Warsaw (Poland) and Quebec City (Canada). Her work has been presented in various solo and group exhibitions, residencies, art fairs, festivals, and is part of private and public collections in the Americas and Europe.
Didier Morelli is an artist, art and performance historian, critic and curator who lives and works in Montreal. In practice as well as in theory, he is interested in the cultural and social intersections between visual and performance art. He is a FRQSC postdoctoral fellow (2022-2024) in the Department of Art History at Concordia and holds a PhD in Performance Studies from Northwestern University.
