Activity À mon dernier repas



Description

Artistic approach

Sandra Lachance’s ambition is to connect art with our everyday lives which she scrutinizes as would a journalist or an anthropologist to reveal their beauty and authenticity.

To achieve this, she develops explorative and narrative systems inside a multiplicity of virtual, functional and urban spaces.

Her artworks, which can be described as “snapshots of society,” bring to the fore different social groups whose members are for the most part “invisible.” By focusing her attention on others, the artist seeks to open up the boundaries between the social classes and burst the bubbles people cocoon themselves with, a form of individualism typical of our time./p>

The artwork

À mon dernier repas

Photograph

Such is the subject of the series of photographs, titled À mon dernier repas, chosen for the 2020 edition of the Art Souterrain Festival, which addresses the emotional and cultural charge inherent in the idea of the last meal.

The initial objective was to explore how the sharing of food is a social ritual essential to an individual’s self-expression, in this case the various actors who took part in this socio-artistic undertaking. It must be said that Lachance’s photos are a de facto invitation to reflect upon our existence and on the world we have inhabited, a retrospective introspection which precedes an eventual reset, allowing us to relive our past life or renew it.
