Sherbrooke Record - - TALK - Record Staff

The Beaulne Mu­seum will be pre­sent­ing a new ex­hibit, “His­toires du temps present” by artist Gisèle Nor­mandin, from Oct. 14 to Nov. 17,

A vernissage open to the pub­lic will be held on Sun­day, Oct.14 at 2 p.m.

Gisèle Nor­mandin holds a bach­e­lor's de­gree in Cul­tural Re­search, a BA in Art His­tory, a BA in Fine Arts and a Cer­tifi­cate in Print­ing Arts, all from the Univer­sity de Que­bec à Mon­treal. In ad­di­tion to her many ex­hi­bi­tions in cul­tural cen­ters, mu­nic­i­pal gal­leries, and artists' cen­ters, she was a mem­ber of the el­i­gi­bil­ity com­mit­tee for the group Visual Arts-artists of Que­bec (RAAV), served on the Board of Di­rec­tors of the Coun­cil from 1994 on­wards, and was pres­i­dent un­til it was dis­solved in June 1997.

Hu­man pres­ence is al­ways priv­i­leged in Nor­mandin’s world, and she takes a crit­i­cal look at the hu­man con­di­tion; ob­serv­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal fail­ure, wan­der­ing and drift­ing in­di­vid­u­als, the quest for spir­i­tu­al­ity, in­cur­sions into the mem­ory of be­hav­iors, ref­er­ences to scrip­ture and hu­man his­tory through the strata and ur­gency of time.

Nor­mandin’s work uses dif­fer­ent pro­cesses and tech­niques: paint­ing, col­lage, graph­ics and var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als. In ad­di­tion, she works on raw wood sup­ports, the high­lights and tex­tures of which she ex­ploits. She also uses hot glue to cre­ate other kinds of high­lights, struc­tures, char­ac­ters and writ­ing that con­vey mem­ory and his­tory.
