Contemporary Canadian Sculpture Biennale
June 22nd – September 7th, 2018
Alice Jarry presents Dust Agitator, a kinetic and electronic dust and felt installation at the Contemporary Canadian Sculpture Biennale – Trajectory of the senses – Arts and Science in Trois-Rivières (QC).
The series of interventions, ‘Dust Agitator’, draws into the artistic field ‘tired’ residual matter that has come to the end of its useful life: a fine dust produced by the recycling of glass. Contrary to an inert material, the dust has mobilised a continuum of material, geological, human and technological relationships ranging from the extraction of sand for the creation of new glass to its transformation in factories and the end of its recyclable life. The piece explores the potentialities produced by this residue as it merges with a new constellation of heterogeneous elements.
Alice Jarry was interviewed by La Fabrique Culturelle.
