Abstract (English)

Carefully designed to reflect the exhibition themes of memory, nostalgia and mourning (with Baldissera’s poetic texts on layered translucent papers), this small brochure accompanies an exhibition of multimedia works by five artists (four Canadian and one French), in the tradition of momento mori. In her essay, curator Baldissera provides an interpretation of each piece, while emphasizing “the potency of the memoir as a record of lived experience.” 6 bibl. ref.
