L’art en héritage

Lors de la journée internationale des femmes, le 8 mars dernier, le magazine Spirale en profitait pour publier un article sur mon documentaire, “L’art en héritage“, de Justine Falardeau. En voici un extrait, qui fait référence aux séquences d’animation dans le film: “C’est dans ces moments, qui permettent d’ailleurs au film d’avoir une signature visuelle intéressante, que l’on quitte le terrain de la réalité, ou en tout cas du réalisme, pour entrer dans celui du rêve et du jeu.”


New Visions at RIDM

Point of View Magazine published “New Visions at RIDM“, by Madeline Lines, an article about the films in competition for best first film at RIDM 2019:

“Legault’s doc is a glimmering and playful family portrait”

“The film is delightful for its portrayal of the sisters’ aura of eternal childhood”

“Jasa’s whimsical drawings, animated on top of the live footage with impeccable timing (especially in the parts in Iceland), perfect the film’s central feeling of pure wonder.”

Ny Vor / New Spring launches its webpage

New Spring in the Dead of Winter launches its webpage http://nyvor-newspring.com/


New Spring in the Dead of Winter is an interdisciplinary performance project made by artists from Montréal, Canada, during their residency at Arts Iceland in Isafjordur from may 1st-28th which will then be presented in Iceland and Montreal. Sparked by the Icelandic texts derived from songs sung by our great-grandmother Ingibjorg Gudmundsdottir (1891-1994), this project arcs through 4 generations of women.

In New Spring visual worlds by Zuzu Knew parallel music made by Syngja, both infused by the same themes of personified nature and mythic archetypes. Their reinterpretations have become an original performance; compositions and songs with Cello, electronics, synthesizer and voice with costumes and projections that combine to create an immersive experience, both visceral and surreal.

Syngja has performed around the world, most notably for the Société des arts technologiques (SAT), Festival TransAmériques, festival MEG, M for Montreal, Suoni Per Il Popolo, Pop Montreal, Mono No Aware (Brooklyn), and BeauHaus (Brussels).

Zuzu Knew has made costumes for Tanya Tagaq, Laakkukuk Williamson Bathory, Klo Pelgag and Tommy Kruise. She has made interdisciplinary work for MIX NYC, Koumaria in Athens, Greece and NXNE, Toronto.
