Festival d’art actuel, Edmundston, NB, from November 12 to 28, 2020

A “Curio” is a glass cabinet or display case where you can present collections of objects that share a common theme.  “Pop-up” installations allow alternatives to traditional exhibitions spaces; they are also an invitation to experience works of art, either while driving or by walking on the sidewalk.

“Curio” is an installation of 3 digital paintings of goddesses presented as an altarpiece.  This gothic style arrangement refers to cathedral windows; which, in this case symbolically offers a look into the sacred feminine.  Presented from an improbable and surprising place, these newly invented goddesses are in a way visual anthologies, modern icons that add to the traditional world of female archetypes.
