La bénédiction des gorges (2019-)
La bénédiction des gorges/The Blessing of the Throats is the fourth instalment of the series Fourteen, Auxiliary, contemporary video artworks that take on saint mythologies to address salient issues. This four-channel video work to be presented in the form of an accessible, floating cube—built around the story of Saint Blaise—centres around (mis)communication, with a focus on the gendered, gendering and limited aspect of the French language. The video was produced during a CALQ-sponsored residency at Les Récollets in Paris in 2019, and was premiered at Pauline Perplexe accompanied by a live performance by Creaghan. Previous works in the series include SCHWINDEL (2019), HEURTMAS (2016), and COPRUS SANCTI (2013). For work and exhibition information, visit the Info page.
