The Collections in Perspective presents two artist residencies, each in turn involving the creation of a work before your eyes.

The guest artists offer an original and contemporary look at objects that are powerful carriers of memory, drawing inspiration from the online collections of Musée de la civilisation. They also take the opportunity to invite you to participate in their creative process.

Each artist residency is followed by a ten-day exhibition period.

Created entirely on site, the work draws connections between three complementary perspectives on Aboriginal culture and art in the territory of Québec, from yesterday to today.

Using archival documents from the Musée de la civilisation collection, the accounts of contemporary Aboriginal artists and craftspeople, and your own perceptions, the creators forge links between past and present in this engaging interactive installation.

Your movements and actions directly influence the visual and sound content of the work.

Autobiographies by Collections

Natacha Clitandre

Residency: July 12 to August 23, 2017
Exhibition: August 24 to September 2, 2017

 

The work Autobiographies by collections is made up of two complementary parts. The first is an in situ installation in which the artist presents objects chosen from Musée de la civilisation's digital collection. The second is a mobile app that invites you to walk through the installation to contemplate the images and view textual information.

Superimposing a personal narrative on this rich collective heritage, the artist shares memories in an impressionistic manner and tells her story through ellipsis. Then, she invites you to do the same. Autobiographies by collections is a free association of anecdotes inspired by objects that represent a community, as well as every individual belonging to it.
