In keeping with its desire to support the future of art in Quebec, FIFA is happy to showcase the province’s talented young artists who thus gain greater exposure while enriching the Festival with their work.
This year’s choice is the multidisciplinary artist Camille Zurini of Montreal. When she started her BFA at Concordia in 2011, she decided to try the ceramics class and fell in love with the medium. Discovering a propensity for 3D, she then enrolled in bronze-casting classes. She fell in love with the laborious process of metal casting the same way she did with ceramics; from the modelling of the wax, all the steps until the casting and the final finishing of the metal piece. After completing her BFA in 2016, she now mostly works in the mediums of ceramics and painting, while occasionally she still works wax modelling, metal-casting and taking photographs. In September 2016 she launched a series of functionals ceramics under the name of Lola Cera.
