Vestiges I

Sorting rubbish in clandestine dumps. Standing in location and on the piles of rubbish before and after the work as a sign (marker) of possession, despite not being the owner (of the property or the rubbish), and as a public demonstration of responsibility for the actions performed. The music for the video Vestiges I was created by Christian Carrière. Both the creation of the video and the work performed were made during a four-week residency and event titled “faire avec” organized through AdMare, centre d’artistes en art actuel, Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Québec – July 2013.
