The Equity-seeking Committee would like to invite you to this workshop of Stéphane Martelly as part of the Laboratoire #1
Writer, painter and scholar, Stéphane Martelly was born in Port-au-Prince and now lives in Montreal. Through a profoundly transdisciplinary approach, she confronts theory, critical reflection and art in her work. She has published poetry [La Boîte noire suivi de Départs 2004)] and children's tales [Couleur de rue, 1999 and L'Homme aux cheveux de fougère, 2002]. Her pictorial works is showcased in the digital art book Folie passée à la chaux vive (Madness spent in quicklime) (Publie.net, 2010).
Her scholarly work notably include working in the Montreal based Life Stories Of Montrealers Displaced By War, Genocide And Other Human Rights Violations as a researcher and coordinator. She also wrote a monography on Haitian poet Magloire-Saint-Aude (Le Sujet opaque, 2001) and several articles on Caribbean literature. Her latest essay in research-creation is: Les Jeux du dissemblable. Folie, marge et féminin en littérature haïtienne contemporaine, Nota Bene, 2016.
Her recent publications are La Maman qui s’absentait (Vents d’Ailleurs, 2011), Inventaires (Triptyque, 2016) and L'enfant gazelle (Remue-Ménage, 2018).
As an Affiliate Professor in the Theatre Department and Main Coordinator for the Centre of Oral History and Digital Storytelling, her continuing interest remains the possibility and limits of creation and interpretation.
Laboratoire is a new space for reflection and action through art concerning matters animating La Centrale and the Montreal art community. The inaugural edition is an invitation to take our first steps collectively towards a decolonial feminism.
