Postillons/Intemperatures of language*

Sporobole invites you to Catherine Préfontaine’s artist presentation on Saturday, March 2 from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm.

Catherine Préfontaine is interested in visually mapping non-visual phenomena. It is through the implied filter of the body as a barrier and receptacle that the integrity of the human being is probed, as he faces the sensory invasions of the world.

The artist proceeds by actions on the surface of the walls that she scratches, punches and covers. Improvisation is favoured as a strategy for exploring body memories, physical and emotional states. For a year now, she has repeatedly punctured the walls of her studio. The sets of holes that have emerged from this process remind him of spittle, as well as the holes in old telephone handsets.

Catherine Préfontaine’s presentation will be followed by a visite des laboratoires  of the Groupe de Recherche en Acoustique de l’Université de Sherbrooke (GAUS) with André Berry.
