Façonnez-vous une oeuvre d'art
Bachelor in Studio Arts at Concordia University, Geneviève Arcand seeks to understand how art can bring people together. Through interactivity, she creates special encounters between her installations and the public. Her approach proposes new ways of thinking about daily life and trivialities by crystallizing in time these little moments.
Artistic project : Façonnez-vous une oeuvre d'art
“The mediation of art is conceived in such a way as to make art accessible to the general public [...]. It adds meaning to works that are not sufficiently "meaningful" to the public. [...] Contemporary art becomes problematic because it is not enough in and of itself most of the time.” (Marie-Luz Ceva, « L'art contemporain demande-t-il de nouvelles formes de médiation ?», Culture & Musées Année, vol. 3, no 1, 2004, p. 69)
Is this gap the fault of the viewer or of the work?
Façonnez-vous une oeuvre d'art allows you to deepen the meaning of contemporary works of art through the creative process while leaving mediation aside.
