A Performance Celebrating Water | June 21 2010

How do we relate to water after the gulf oil crisis? What information can our senses bring to our consciousness of water at this present moment in time?

I'm pleased to invite you to an event I'll be performing at this coming Monday June 21st, 2010 (Hall Building, H-767). The Thinking with Water Project is hosting an Artists' panel “Thinking with Water: Beyond Text” from 4:45pm - 6:30pm. My freshwater mermaid will be making a short appearance, offering water samples from a collection of rivers and lakes of various regions of Quebec. Some water samples are out of stock and contaminated, while others taste like blueberry roots and rocks. Interaction guaranteed.

"Moving beyond text and materializing alternate approaches to thinking with water, artists and researchers Sarah Renshaw, Rae Staseson and Gisèle Trudel (Ælab) will present and discuss their work with water. Thoughtful, thought-provoking and materially rich, their artworks, Stream of Consciousness (2010), Water Drawing (2010) and the “conference performance” of light, sweet, cold, dark, crude (LSCDC) (2006-), offer a generative counterpoint to the written components of the Thinking With Water collection. During the opening reception, Emily Rose Michaud will offer a rare tasting of nearby waters."

Une performance. Une célébration d'eau. | 21 juin 2010.

Lundi, 21 juin 2010. « Penser avec l’eau : Au-delà du texte » Table ronde d’artistes – 16h45-18h30, Hall Building, H-767. (Présentations en anglais, questions en français bienvenues).

Allant au-delà du texte afin de concrétiser des approches non conventionnelles de penser avec l’eau, les artistes et chercheur(e)s Sarah Renshaw, Rae Staseson et Gisèle Trudel (Ælab) présenteront et discuteront leur travail avec l’eau. Chaque œuvre est réfléchie et riche, et suscite la réflexion, offrant un contrepoint génératif aux composantes écrites de la collection Penser avec l’eau. Elles s’intitulent Stream of Consciousness (2010), Water Drawing (2010) et la « conférence performance » de light, sweet, cold, dark, crude (LSCDC, 2006-). Lors de la réception d’ouverture, Emily Rose Michaud nous fera déguster de rares échantillons des eaux avoisinantes; et il y aura de la musique de DJ Claire.
