Residency Chantal Dumas (2018–2019)

A radio sound work as part of a major publication project !

Last November, Avatar welcomed Chantal Dumas who is beginning the creation of a radio sound work as part of a major publication project on her practice. In addition to a printed book with texts by established authors of the discipline who examine her path, three sound artists have been invited to dive in a dialogue with her universe: Anna Friz, Carole Rieussec, and Erin Sexton. Avatar will invite you to discover this project with major unprecedented works and texts in the year 2019!

She was part of the exhibition C’est arrivé près de chez vous at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, and at the FIMAV (2012 and 2014 editions).
