Visual Arts Exhibition | Sylvie Roussel-Janssens

Sylvie Roussel-Janssens’ work shows her interests in history and the environment.

Born in Montreal and now a resident of Chilliwack, she is an honours graduate from the Emily Carr College of Art. Sylvi shows her work frequently, and obtained a Canada Council grant for Sumas Lake: 22 Miles of Memories, an amphibian sculptural installation, about the disappeared Fraser Valley lake – a subject that’s we’re heard so much about since November of last year. Her approach to sculpture is equally conceptual and based in the joy of the building process. She is pursuing her journey with textile while also experimenting with various materials at the intersection of art, craft and design.

Her commitment to sustainability in making art is more important now than ever. All her new work is made with recycled materials and repurposed projects. She believes in the value of repair. Perhaps if we start with mending small things, we can have the courage to fix our broken world.

Discover Sylvie Roussel-Janssens’ works on Saturday and Sunday at the Festival au Bois!
