LE SAPIN PARTAGÉ

Dans le cadre du projet Mon Beau Sapin, au Plateau Mont-Royal, nous présentons Le jorgegarcia-sapinpartage-03Sapin Partagé, une installation inspirée par nos traditions du temps des fêtes et la diversité culturelle de la Main. D’abord, notre sapin est partagé par des histoires de divers gens de diverses cultures racontant des anecdotes sur leurs traditions de Noël. Et ensuite, ce sapin est partagé par ces gens, vagabondant sur la Main, qui prendront le temps de s’asseoir et de raconter leurs propres anecdotes entre eux. Partageons-donc nos façons de célébrer Noël avec nos prochains, inspirés par cette diversité proprement Montréalaise!

jorge-mugshot-1JORGE GARCIA CRÉATEUR D’ESPACES

Je suis un concepteur, artiste et entrepreneur qui ne veuille jamais cesser d’apprendre, et dont l’esprit est toujours prêt à se réinventer. Au croisement des disciplines, je cherche à créer des environnements à partir des enjeux précis et des récits personnels de mes clients, et qui sont inspirés d’art, de culture, d’histoire et des divers contextes locaux.
Mon objectif premier est de «naturaliser» les lieux ; c’est-à-dire, de les rendre désirables et habitables, alors que mon approche consiste à proposer des gestes de revitalisation aptes à redéfinir l’expérience de l’occupation des espaces.

FEEDBACK LAB II – RETROSPECT – 07/03/2014 from Funkshion Creation on Vimeo.

Project Description: 
The presentation covered a few events exploring the process of documenting participants’ presence and actions with the intention of rebroadcasting the material directly in the event space. The documentation component requires the use of instant and digital photography, webcams and digital film while the rebroadcasting occurs through visual projections. Physical installations are conceived to receive the projections and integrate them in a spatial setting.

BIO:

A recent McGill Architecture graduate, David has been active in the fields of architecture and art making over the past years. He has worked and studied architecture in Montreal, Canada and Venice, Italy. He has also been running Funkshion Creation, an art/event practice, alongside 2 other colleagues for the past 2 years and a half. He recently parted from this practice, however, to start Vocabulaires Visibles, his own art/event practice through which he explores the relation between spatial installations, object making and artistic performance.
