Julie Favreau  /  Délicat Pulse

Performances: Volmir Cordeiro (Brazil), Emily Wardill (United Kingdom), Adva Zakaï (Israel/Belgium)

Julie Favreau’s work is situated between the visual and performing arts. It mixes video installations, sculptures and photographs shown in galleries as well as performances and scenographic elements presented in theaters and festivals. She now presents her latest production in Délicat Pulse, a hybrid and performative exhibition, monographic and plural at the same time, a way to shed light on the link between her studio practice, her collaboration with other artists and her approach to performance, that she always sees in echo with her visual work. 

Julie Favreau's studio was sponsored by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 2015, period during which she worked on this project.
