In Marlène Renaud-B.’s project, a character transforms into a sound device, the sign of a new way of understanding a space. The perception of the environment is done through an empty body, depersonalised, a device becoming a resonant box, activating the unspoken materiality of the landscape. It navigates in places, evoking dislocations that are as much spatial as temporal, located between a prehistory and a utopian future. A monument is erected to its memory, inviting the hearing of the inaudible.
Marlène Renaud-B. is a visual artist living and working in Montréal. Strongly influenced by the phenomenons of perception lived in the everyday, she explores the porousnous of the individual in her context, paying particular attention to spaces of intermediacy . She endeavours to create porous structures by the intervention of installation, sound art, performance, sculpture and video. Recently she has presented her work in Brasil, France, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, the US and Canada. In 2013, she received the Charles Pachter Prize for Canadian Emerging Artists, awarded by the Hnatyshyn Foundation.
