Alexis Bellavance & Hugo GirardCA
PROJECTEUR Both of these artists are habitués of the stage: one focuses on the extension of action in time, while the other regularly gives concerts on the European alternative music scene. Both use analogue sources: sounds produced by the body, and found in nature and daily life.During few hours, an ongoing action by Alexis Bellavance is punctuated by Hugo Girard’s sound interventions, which become briefer and more surprising as time goes on. Duration encounters the moment. The artists, who find themselves in a closed space, juxtapose two conceptions of time. Projecteur deals with the highly relative perception of passing time.This works has been developed for Ectoplasmes 5x2, a creative laboratory curated by Nicole Gingras and Eric Mattson and produced by Minute with the contribution of Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
