Artists :

Evamaria Schaller

Evamaria Schaller

Evamaria Schaller was born in 1980 in Graz and currently lives and works in Cologne. She studied film in Salzburg and Prague (2006) and graduated in 2011 from the Academy of Media Arts Cologne as a postgraduate student in performance art and experimental film. Her work oscillates between performance art, film and installation and has been shown in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Burma, Thailand, the Philippines, the United Kingdom and China, among others. Schaller is interested in the interaction with site-specific conditions. She deals with social environments and liminal spaces and examines them with her body through clear and simple choices of actions.


Christiane Obermayr

Christiane Obermayr

Christiane Obermayr works and lives in Cologne. After finishing studies in both dance and massage therapy, she studied fine arts, focusing mainly
on performance art and film at the College of Fine Arts in Braunschweig. In 2002, she founded the performance group Ernst Sepia, which led her to do interdisciplinarywork with various artists until 2009. Since 2010, she has worked in different collectives and as a solo artist. Her work arises from everyday observations and objects that she presents in different contexts, and her actions gravitate around touch and connection to others, in a search for the essence of human togetherness, common everyday longing and ambivalence.


Patric Lacasse

Patric Lacasse

Patric Lacasse  travaille à titre de professeur en arts visuels au Cégep de Sherbrooke. Dans sa pratique artistique, il  dirige ses intérêts vers l’action concrétisée par le geste dans l’espace public. Il a donné, depuis quelques années, plusieurs ateliers sur le sujet notamment à la prestigieuse école de langue de l’Université Middlebury, Vt. Il est également co-fondateur de l’événement montréalais mondialement reconnu, Viva Art-Action pour lequel il avait co-commisarié la première édition pour le Centre des arts actuels Skol. Son travail en performance a été vu dans plusieurs festivals internationaux en collectif et individuellement (Allemagne, Chine, Corée, Espagne, Etats-Unis). Il s’intéresse également à Fait-Maison avec qui il a organisé une rencontre de deux journées incluant ateliers et performances, en plein air en Estrie. Parmi ses intérêts pour l’action du corps dans l’espace, il s’intéresse aux correspondances multiples de l’acte avec l’espace de présentation par le biais de la vidéo, du son et de la sculpture-installation. Son travail en salle a été vu dans plusieurs centres d’expositions et manifestations artistiques au Québec. Ses expériences et engagements auprès des centres d’artistes font également de lui un partenaire dans quelques conseils d’administration, notamment au Centre des arts actuels Skol et à Sporobole, centre en art actuel. Il est titulaire d’une maîtrise en Arts visuels et médiatiques de l’UQÀM.


“RiAP in Motion” is a bold strategy that benefits the festival, the invited artists and the partnering organizations all at once. While RiAP benefits from reaching audiences throughout the province of Quebec,the artists are given the opportunity to grasp, experiment with and test Quebec’s
identity and territory, all the while maximizing their reach. This portion of the event also provides a dynamic strategy to the co-presenters who wish to broaden and vary their regular programming, all the while allowing local artists to present their work in various types of events that favour the exchange and sharing of ideas. Both in Quebec City and in the province’s different regions, RiAP has always presented the opportunity to create ties. Indeed, a good number of collaborations and partnerships have seen the day during the event.

For this new edition, the RiAP 2016 will also make the invited artists circulate. Eight artists centers of and cultural organization of Rouyn-Noranda to Chicoutimi, including Trois-Rivières and Montreal, agreed to accompany us in this adventure and will receive the artists of the RiAP 2016 between September 14th and 28th. These organizations are: Atelier Silex (Trois-Rivières), L’Écart (Rouyn-Noranda), Atoll (Victoriaville), Langage Plus (Alma), Le Lobe (Chicoutimi), Sporobole (Sherbrooke), Centre Clark et VIVA ! Art Action.
