Happening: Home Canning Workshop with Raphaëlle de Groot

Free admission
Date and time
Sunday, March 11, 2018 from 1 PM to 5 PM

On Sunday March 11, join DHC/ART Education for a Happening! Co-hosted with local artist Raphaëlle de Groot, the Happening marks the end of the workshop Home Canning by offering a special edition of it titled Conversation with the leftovers.

For this event, Raphaëlle will create a sculpture by assembling objects and materials from our “pantry of communal supplies”, initially used for the artistic cannings of the Home Canning workshop. Everyone is invited to participate in this collective artwork. 

The Happening is ongoing (from 1 to 5 PM), bilingual, free of charge, and open to all visitors. No reservation is required.

Home Canning is the result of a collaboration between Raphaëlle de Groot and DHC/ART Education, in conjunction with the exhibition L’OFFRE.

The Happening will take place in the Education Room @ 465 St-Jean Street.

The Festival international du film sur l’art (FIFA) will present the world premiere of the documentary Subsistences on March 17 at Concordia University (J.A. DeSève Cinema). The fruit of a year in the life of artist Raphaëlle de Groot in Minganie, Quebec, Subsistences draws a poetic documentary picture focusing on the cultural, social, and environmental aspects of a far-removed region.


Raphaëlle de Groot’s artistic practice is process-oriented and generally anchored to living or working environments. It engages participants and communities in the production of traces and narratives, revealing the out of scope elements of human experience, non-visible domains, often forgotten or neglected. Developed from encounters, collaborations, gatherings and other varied actions, her projects are open and exploratory. The ensuing works encompass drawing, photography and video as well as installation and performance. Recently, as part of the event Repères2017 | LandMarks2017, she presented Subsistances – Inniun, a multi-part project stemming from the territory of Minganie in Moyenne-Côte-Nord and, above all, her exchanges with the indigenous and non-indigenous peoples living there. Raphaëlle de Groot holds a masters degree in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal (2007). Her works have been exhibited in North America, South America and Europe since 1997. She has received multiple distinctions including the Sobey Art Award in 2012.
