La danse des fleurs sauvages

by Maryse Arseneault


In a recent investigation on alienation and the notion of stewardship, I document plants and learn how to dance through them. For example, I am interested in the structures and movement observed in plants, growing through cycles, sharing space with other life forms. I then seek ways to apply their lessons in daily actions, gestures of care and forms of slow activism. Through drawing, performance and audio-video, my hybrid practice examines storytelling in relation to our feelings of belonging, and how my investment in public spaces can disrupt colonial and capitalistic mindsets.
