J. Spence and D. Roberts, 1991-1992

Carl Bouchard completed a Bachelor in visual arts at UQAC in 1990. Since then, he has been working in Chicoutimi, first at the studio l’Oreille Coupée (1989-1997), and now at the Ateliers d’Artistes TOUTTOUT, where he was a founding member. He is also a founding member and president of the artist-run centre Le LOBE (1993), and since 2008 has been working as an art specialist for the application of policies pertaining to the integration of art into architecture and the environment.

Pascal Dufaux has been making kinetic video machines and installing them in various exterior and interior spaces for several years. Reappropriating video surveillance cameras, these machines use a motorized mechanism to make the cameras rotate in orbits and scan their immediate environment. Just like probes sent into space, they inform viewers of their surroundings. Pascal Dufaux has presented his work in many venues in Canada, Europe, and other parts of the world.

Jo Spence (1934-1992) was a photographer and teacher well known for her poignant explorations of the family and self-image through her book Putting Myself in the Picture (Camden Press). In 1982 she broke new ground by developing methods of using photography as a therapeutic tool – first as an adjunct to her breast cancer treatment program, and secondly as a means of confronting the question of mortality and approaching death following a second and final diagnosis of leukaemia.
