Synopsis

Presented in association with the exhibition LOFFRE at DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art which runs until March 11, 2018.

World Premiere – Artist and director in attendance (Montreal and Quebec City)

The fruit of a year in the life of artist Raphaëlle de Groot in Minganie, Quebec, Subsistences draws a poetic documentary picture focusing on the cultural, social, and environmental aspects of a far-removed region.

Directors

Raphaëlle De Groot

Focusing on the process, Raphaëlle de Groot’s artistic endeavour calls upon individuals and communities to participate in the development of tidbits and tales. Elaborated through collaborations or collections of fragments, her works can include drawings, photos, videos, installations, and performances. She recently directed Subsistences Inniun, a multifaceted project inspired by her meeting with the First Nation and non-native communities of Minganie, in the Moyenne-Côte-Nord region (curated by Véronique Leblanc). Raphaëlle de Groot has a Master of Visual and Media Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal. Her works have been exhibited in North America, South America, and Europe since 1997. She is the recipient of many awards, including the Sobey Art Award in 2012.

Maxime Girard

Maxime Girard has a Bachelor of the Interdisciplinary Program of Arts of Chicoutimi, Quebec, and studied Philosophy at the Université Laval. He's mainly working on fiction films, but always with a sociologic and philosophic point of view on human history. The documentary aspect of his films emerges from his work as a filmmaker and video editor for the company La Boîte Rouge Vif.
