Abstract (English)

Garvey notes the ambiguity in the multidisciplinary work of the Nova Scotia artist, and attempts at an interpretation of her repertoire of motifs culled from various sources: mythology, feminist discourse, traditional women's fibrework, etc. M. O'Brien demonstrates the role of the textile medium in this scathing practice on the borders of craft and art, the profane and the sacred.

Résumé

Garvey constate l'ambiguïté de l'oeuvre multidisciplinaire de l'artiste néo-écossaise et tente d'interpréter son répertoire composite de motifs aux emprunts variés (mythologie, discours féministe, art traditionnel des femmes, etc). M. O'Brien s'en tient pour sa part à démontrer la place du médium textile dans cette pratique décapante aux frontières entre artisanat et art, profane et sacré.
