The Artists

Audrey Croteau 

Continent 1
Medium used: Collage, oil pastel on paper

On a base of recycled paper, multicolored scraps obtained through the creation of previous works, are intuitively glued and intertwined. From this abstract collage emerges an organic form, akin to that of a continent where all the scraps cohabit harmoniously, thanks to their differences.

Charlotte Larouche 

Point E
Medium used: Photograph of a sculpture

Point E is a feminist sculpture representing a point and the capital letter “e”, raising the issue of whether or not to capitalize words in the French language. The capital letter “e” and the sculpture's dimensions underline the importance of diversity in the written word.

Lauralie Fortin

Medium used: Silk-screen printing on plates 

For this childlike meal, the plates are adorned with childhood photos of each participant, who eat without fear of dirtiness. It's an opportunity for everyone to reappropriate the context of the meal, but also to bring together individuals with such multiple facets around the same table.  

Marie-Josée Gagné

Mediums used: Aluminum, wood, metal, plastic, paper, cardboard, wax, rope, plaster, wool, etc. 

By embracing diversity, we recognize the intrinsic value of every individual, whatever their origin, beliefs, or culture. Celebrating the strength and richness of difference opens society up to a more equitable and inclusive world. Isn't this the key to human evolution?

Sonia Plourde 

Best of Bestiaire
Medium used: Chromatic black ink lithograph, printed on warm gray BFK Rives paper

This lithograph presents parts of real or imaginary animals amalgamated into an improbable whole. What these varied elements have in common is their interdependence: their relevance comes from their diversity, and each would be meaningless without the presence of the others. We can imagine an infinite number of combinations arising from this ecosystem.

Samah Saidi

Medium used: Photography from video

Proprioceptions is originally a video sculpture in which shreds of moving skin are condensed into a digital screen. Inspired by the unprecedented interpersonal exchanges made possible by the Internet, the image reminds us of the anonymous nature of these encounters, where only fragments of our identity are revealed, and through which diversity emerges.
