Camille Lescarbeau and Delphine Kim Thériault de Carufel are among the 60 emerging artists participating to Créer des ponts, an Art Souterrain art initiative.
Camille Lescarbeau, eco-feminist artist and holder of a Bachelor’s degree in visual arts and art history from Concordia University, is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in visual and media Arts at UQAM. Influenced by her background in dance and art history, she orients her practice around laborious and physical processes. Her romantic vision of matter guides her approach, while feminist discourses in art history have informed her posture as an artist-artisan. These discourses have led her to reject the dichotomy and hierarchy between arts and crafts.
Delphine Kim Thériault de Carufel, a Montreal-born holder of a Bachelor’s degree in visual and media arts from UQAM, is currently pursuing a Master’s degree. Through sculpture, she questions the impact of new technologies on our psyche. The artist creates human casts capturing the entire body or fragments of it. Playing on gender ambiguity, the artist then adds colours and accessories, giving a sense of identity to these characters. These humanoids, inert or animated by robotic mechanisms, raise various issues in a world where technologies are omnipresent.
