ROMAN FEUILLETON: The Poetry Reading
A reading of poetry inspired by the art of Michèle Provost.
13 June 2014, 8:00 pm.
Centre d’exposition l’Imagier,
9 Front Street, Gatineau (Aylmer), QC.
Admission is free.

With ROMAN FEUILLETON, Michèle Provost’s latest border-blurring media-mixing visual art installation, the acclaimed Gatineau conceptual artist continues her tradition of using her work to inspire a response from and provoke a conversation with the literary artists in her community.
Created with her trademark combination of the visual and the textual, Provost’s new exhibition comes in the form of a promotional campaign for a series of literary works. Comprising books, magazines, games, a recorded radio-play and many other promotional items created in her intimately handmade and tangibly material style – ROMAN FEUILLETON (“Serial Novel”) is based on a surrealist text which Provost herself has composed out of lines from four of Québec’s literary landmarks; Anne Hébert’s Kamouraska, Michel Tremblay’s La grosse femme d’à côté est enceinte, Réjean Ducharme’s L’avalée des avalés, and Une saison dans la vie d’Emmanuel, by Marie-Claire Blais.

Always interested in seeing how others will interpret her work, her ideas and the sources which inspire her, Provost has challenged a group of writers and poets from across the local literary community to use her ROMAN FEUILLETON text – French and English versions – as the basis from which to create literary art of their own.

Among the writers who took up the challenge are: Cameron Anstee, Christian Bouchard, Monique Desnoyers, Amanda Earl, Guy Jean, Glenn Nuotio, Pearl Pirie, Carmel Purkis, Sandra Ridley & Grant Wilkins.

Please join the writers as they present and perform their work for the artist and the public in a reading at the opening reception for ROMAN FEUILLETON, at the Centre d’exposition l’Imagier in Gatineau on June 13th, 2014.

The Centre d’exposition l’Imagier is located at 9 Front Street in the Aylmer sector of Gatineau, QC. The opening reception for the exhibition begins at 6:00 pm and the reading begins at 8:00 pm.

Both the reception and the reading are open to the pubic, and admission is free. The reading is co-sponsored by The AB Series.
