Reviews

“(Le Projet Migration)… is engaging, heartfelt, and inspired by real events. This honesty and authenticity add a dimension to the work that cannot be faked.”

La Presse

Corps étranger II est aussi un riche univers sculptural vivant, organique. J’y ai vu, dans une magie qui se fait et fuit, un masque africain, des protubérances grotesques, une citrouille, une forme extraterrestre, un énorme sexe féminin, des chairs carnivores

Christine Germain, accompagnée par Sonshèree Giles et Joyce Lu, nous laisse toute la marge de manoeuvre sur le sens de l'oeuvre avec le temps pour le faire, grâce aux habiles et fins éclairages de Heather Basarab.
