Texts by Sylvie Fortin and Claude Lacroix
Welcome to the ficto-biographical modular universe in which Gatineau, Quebec artist Chantal Dahan carefully combines space, objects, sound and images of various types (photographic, cinematographic, and videographic) to explore her bi-cultural, bi-national, bi-religious, multilingual identity. Published in conjunction with an exhibition of Dahan’s new work, this short catalogue features texts by curator Sylvie Fortin, and Claude Lacroix and explores Dahan’s new work that is coloured by fiction and abstracted to act their scripted part in an installation where proximity and distancing are enlisted to tell stories of origins, migration, trajectory and identity.
