In residency at Avatar from August 15 to August 21, 2016
As part of the summer camps of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Ariane Plante leads a creative workshop with a youth group on Wednesday, August 17
This week, Ariane Plante works in our offices to achieve a new part of her installation L'herbier de sons, a project started last year. An article reporting the research of the American musician Bernie Krause is the source of this creation : "The title of the article alone was enough to shake me: The great orchestra of nature shuts up gradually. "
For several months, the artist from Quebec enjoys every moment to capture "the cohabitation of sound and light" in nature, according to the biodiversity's and the season's progression. L'herbier de sons seeks to create a cumulative effect of spatial sound and shadows that evokes the territory of a fallow field and the "network that unites all the elements of an ecosystem them. "
