Exhibition: From June 29 to July 16, 2017

The University of Sherbrooke’s Graduate Diploma in Current Artistic Practices (DPAA), in collaboration with Sporobole, is a program for active artists who wish to deepen their approaches on the technical, aesthetic, reflective, critical and professional levels. As is often the case with programs offered by Sherbrooke University, the particularity of the program lies in its pedagogical approach based on a creative project carried out with the support of renowned artist-mentors. The result is individual and singular works that question the currents of thought in current artistic practices in the visual arts, based on intense research and multiple learning.

Sept-Up: A configuration, seven artistic practices is the story of encounters, questions and comments through approaches as diverse as performance, the artist’s book, ceramics, photography, installation, sculpture, drawing and painting.

During the opening, the artists will be present to answer your questions, comment on their work, their approach and demonstrate their commitment to their respective practices.


Her narrative approach is based on her personal experiences as well as her ecological and biological concerns. It is in a playful form that she invites us into her universe, through a series of drawings and fictional characters.


It borrows the artistic language to question the place of the spiritual and values in our society. The paintings she presents to us, her soul portraits, were made from interviews.


It is through performance that he challenges and interacts with the public. Its services are as many questions, simulations and demonstrations that try to confront us with the types of links we create.


It is through the valorization of Vietnamese artisanal products that it affirms its ecological concerns, favouring the use of recyclable or recycled materials in their manufacture. She proposes an installation featuring small objects and photographs.


The artist’s book is the privileged creative space for the conceptualization of his intimist reflections about our posture as human beings. In particular, with sound and installation devices that promote the active participation of the reader-spectator.


Her multidisciplinary practice naturally leads her to the installation where she continues to explore the theme of the group and identity links through a pictorial and sculptural approach.


Her ceramic bas-reliefs question current events and highlight the crevices and voids created in a changing environment, which become the counterpart of the human condition’s gaps and faults.
