Originally from Montreal, Franco-Yukon artist Marie-Hélène Comeau has been exploring her Nordic identity since 1992 through various mediums such as painting, performance, cultural mediation and art research. Several of her works have been exhibited, mainly in the Yukon as well as in Montreal. Participation in the Contextualisations project would allow her to pursue the exploration of identity through art and storytelling, initiated in the Yukon. Once again, it will involve everyday objects and photos in a desire to bring out French-language stories in a minority environment.
After 24 years in France, Florence Debeugny immigrated to Quebec in 1979. Photographer and videographer living in Vancouver since 1982, she leads her career in two fields, documentary photography and abstract photography. The documentary photo reveals the changes taking place in the industrial communities in British Columbia where people have lived and worked. She incorporates her photographs with sound, video and interviews to convey the varying degrees of human experience affected by industrial and urban change. Among her many creations, we can proudly count the Maillardville 100 years and more project for which we thank her.
