With this project, I study how the different aspects of the creation experience are related. I am looking to develop a quality of attention. Thus, I observe the nature of the relationships between the body, the mind and the environment, from the point of view of the woman that I am. Attention is one of the central links of a chain of actions: a sequence that relieves choice, intention, attention, gesture and care, to name only these. This chain is the bridge between my inner life and my commitment to the world; the articulation between personal and collective dimensions. There is the question of the act looking itself, the one of looking at oneself looking and making, in order to perceive what happens beyond the surface, so that the attention engages itself and becomes responsible of the interactions that make up the experience. I linger on the role of manual work and attention in the process of awareness and the development of a caring attitude. Concretely, the project will be presented as an installation where photographs and clay sculptures in dialogue unfold in the gallery space. Images and sculptures reflect the object of observation that is the creative practice and its capacity to activate new relationships.

Corine Lemieux

Corine Lemieux (b. 1973) is a Canadian artist based in Montreal who works mainly in the field of photographic and sculptural installation since 1998. Her practice aims to cultivate a quality of attention, an interior layout that allows to see what is present and reveal the links between the different elements that make up a creative experience. She seeks to demonstrate the transformative power of creation on our perceptions and ways of acting. It is a practice that serves as a tool to develop an ethic that guides choices.

Her work has been soloed in several galleries in Quebec, Ontario and Italy. She also participated in Montreal's Mois de la Photo in 2011 as well as several events and exhibitions involving an active form of collaboration. In 2010, she published a book titled En cours de route at Sagamie Art Editions. She is currently completing a Master's degree at the Université du Québec à Montréal.
