Gaëlle Choisne
From March 9th 2014 to May 31st 2014
Gaëlle Choisne, lauréate de la résidence de recherche jeune création, Montréal-Valence

Welcome party, March 13th, 5pm-7pm!

March 9 to May 31, 2014, we are hosting Gaëlle Choisne, a French artist of Haitian origin recently graduated from the École supérieure nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (2013). Choisne’s practice broaches displacement, commitment, absent traces, a colonial past, and the Haitian diaspora. She proposes new restorations, micro-narratives on the traces of a silent history. On the crossroads of sculpture and photography, her installations favour an experiential relationship with materials and refuse.

In Montreal, she intends to pursue her research in-situ, on a city-wide scale, encompassing parks, the Botanical Gardens, ethnographic and natural history societies, and meetings with writers, artists, and people in the Haitian community. At the end of her stay, on May 22, 2014, the artist will make her research public at the AGORA, a space in OPTICA’s new venue devoted to the interpretation of current happenings in contemporary art.

The residency exchange programme art3 \ OPTICA receives the support from the Ministère des relations internationales du Québec, the Consulate General of France (in the context of the 64th session of the Commission permanente de coopération franco-québécoise) and the région Rhône-Alpes.

Born in Cherbourg in 1985, Choisne has exhibited mainly in Lyon. In 2013, she took part in the Genova maXter Program, with artists Giorgio Andreotta Calò and the graphic designers’ collective Åbäke, at the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Villa Croce, in Italy. The same year, she was artist in residence at Astérides (La Friche Belle de Mai), in Marseille, and was awarded the 2013 Prix Linossier, which recognizes the work of three students at the École des Beaux-arts de Lyon. She will present one of her pieces in the collections of the Musée des Beaux-arts de Lyon, in March 2014.
