Online - Scenes from an Island: Stillness, Performativity, and the Imaginary

Dec 9 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM, 2020

At this moment, we all find ourselves feeling like we are on our own islands, filled with a sense of isolation, and surrounded by unrest and uncertainty. The enchanted landscape captured through artist Florence Montmare’s lens encourages us to contemplate our own experiences of space and time. How far must we travel to find a sense of home and self? 

Join us for an evening with artist Florence Montmare and critical theorist and  writer Natasha Chuk, who will discuss the artist’s journey to the faraway island of Fårö, and toward stillness and self-discovery, culminating in her body of work Scenes from an Island

Florence’s work is usually site specific where she stages different scenarios in which the body’s presence and absence is a metaphor for impermanence and transience. Art Identity, displacement and transience are themes that interest her.

Each week a new chapter will be released in the online gallery and further explored through work-specific Mindfulness Fridays Meditations. This talk coincides with the launch of Montmare’s first chapter exteriors.
