At several periods in History, the death of art was predicted. Even today, some people are announcing its end. However, my assumption is that art has always known how to reinvent itself, to exist, despite obstacles and paradigm shifts.

With a parodic and satirical spirit, the project BIG BANG !?#$*SACRÉ&*#?! consists of creating an experimental soundtrack that goes together with an experimental video project.

How to find, through a soundtrack, a strategy for depicting destruction as opposed to the renaissance of art? What is the sound of art? What is the sound of destruction? What is the sound of renaissance?

Inspired metaphorically by the breath of creation, the explosion and the wind of change, I wish to use the following as sound materials: breaths, hisses, sighs, strong or gentle rhythmic breaths, games of inspiration and exhalation giving an intensity, an impulse, both organic and anarchic to the soundtrack.

To do so, 9 musicians using instruments whose sounds are produced by the vibrations of air will be invited to improvise and to compose according to my video images. Only the breaths of the musicians, playing their instruments truncated by the rhythm of the images, will be recorded.

This residency is part of the crossed residencies program C.R.É.E.R.

Caroline Fillion

Artiste multidisciplinaire, Caroline Fillion est originaire de Saguenay. Sa pratique conceptuelle repose sur des conjonctions symboliques ou des métaphores questionnant, détournant ou transgressant les postulats traditionnels du milieu de l'art. Une réflexion tempérée dans un absurde sérieux sur les méthodes de légitimation de l'Art à travers ses institutions et sur le rapport entre l'œuvre, l'artiste et le commentaire qui les précède. Elle est titulaire d'une maîtrise en arts visuels de l'Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, d'un diplôme d'études supérieures en gestion – organismes culturels de HEC Montréal et d'un baccalauréat en arts visuels et médiatiques de l'Université du Québec à Montréal. Son travail de recherche-création a été soutenu par le Conseil des arts du Canada (2019). Elle a participé à de nombreuses expositions régionales, nationales et internationales. Ses œuvres figurent au sein de plusieurs collections privées et publiques, dont celle de Loto-Québec.
