The moods and murmurs of the city remind the human behaviour, which is ironically restricted by the laws of nature. How do we perceive the bodies which we find within the boundaries of the rural and the urban, between the sterilized architectures designed by Man, and those established without him?
For this last edition of Art dans un Jardin, Marie-Claude Gendron, Christian Bujold, Jessica Arseneau and Nimalan Yoganathan will work to superimpose the city and nature.
Mamori / Unseen Songlines
Nimalan Yoganathan is a Montreal sound artist and musician. He currently focuses on the integration of field recordings into his works from his travels through remote landscapes. Nimalan often attempts to mimic the timbral and rhythmic characteristics of such natural sounds using synthetic gestures while also referencing traditional Dub and Hip-Hop aesthetics.
Marie-Claude Gendron recognizes the importance of affiliations and the need to inscribe a performative act within the public space. The goal is to modify, even in the most minimal manner, the preconceptions made on the notions of public and private. Her work includes solo and collective performances, notably at the Lieu, a center for action arts (Québec), at the Galerie des arts visuels (Québec) and as part of the RIAP 2012 (rencontres internationales d'art performance). The artist has participated in multiple exhibits and events in Quebec, France, Brazil and Italy.
