DHC/ART Education Open House: Workshop and Guided Visits

Free admission
Date and time
Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 1 PM to 5 PM

DHC/ART Education invites visitors of all ages to its open house on Saturday December 2, from 1 to 5 PM. Join us, along with artist Raphaëlle de Groot (participating remotely from Italy), in taking part in the workshop Home Canning, offered on an ongoing and drop-in basis. The artist’s presence will manifest itself through a series of packages sent to DHC/ART to be unpacked by participants, as well as by her punctual presence via Skype.

Home Canning, created by Raphaëlle de Groot in collaboration with DHC/ART Education, invites participants to create an artistic canning by composing an ensemble of found objects and materials to formulate a thought destined for someone unknown.

In order to take part in the workshop, we invite you to collect and gather small objects prior to your visit at DHC/ART. There will also be some objects on site for you to use.

Additionally, during the Open House, DHC/ART Education will offer guided visits of L’OFFRE et Bill Viola: Naissance à rebours. The guided visit in French will be at 1:30 PM and the guided visit in English at 3 PM.

No reservation required.

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.
