Textile, textualité et identité - Solo Show by Michaëlle Sergile
Curated by:

231, rue St-Paul West

Textiles, textualité et identité is an exhibition reflecting on the different positions and discourse that fiber can carry. Working initially on how sound is physically transcribed into fabric, the artist highlights a poem, The Mask, recited by American writer Maya Angelou. Inspired by the sonogram produced by the poem, the artist creates a weaving code that allows her to accentuate by making tangible the political presence of laughter and silence.

Secondly, Michaëlle Sergile presents a whole new textile exploration inspired by Chapter 5 (May) of The Skin We’re In by Canadian journalist, writer and activist Desmond Cole. Inspired this time by her own archives, the artist takes a look at exhaustion and the almost vital need to recharge.
