Abstract (English)

"It wasn’t until she tried reading Clarice Lispector for the second time that the author’s work really resonated with Edmonton-based artist Elisabeth Belliveau. Lispector was a Brazilian avant-garde short story writer and novelist, who began writing in the 1940s. In her narratives, which centre around the lives of women, time does not exist as a linear chronology, but as an almost tangible, flexible material that inconsistently folds into and out of itself. Like Lispector, Belliveau is interested in exploring the pliable nature of time. While Lispector builds her worlds with words, Belliveau creates hers through sculpture, stop-motion animation, and more recently, lenticular prints." -- Exhibition catalog, page 1.
