Karine Blanchette & Véronique Girard

Our artistic approach

  • When you think of your first memory, what do you see?
  • What do you hear?
  • Is it the rolling of grains of sand sliding between your toes?
  • The rustling of your bedroom curtains?
  • Or maybe all of these things at once?

In Between is a project that allowed us to explore the completely fragmented universe of memories in a sensory way.

On a visual level, Karine selected photos of travel, objects and significant places before tracing some of them onto sheets of translucent paper. She then made the images dialogue by superimposing them, then tracing, erasing and inventing new designs on the different layers.

In terms of sound, Véronique chose sounds that went well with the emotions she felt while looking at the images, without necessarily being related to the element illustrated. Thus, a door handle can make the sound of waves, and shoes, the song of birds.
