    Franck Bragigand (France / Amsterdam)
    Site-specific installation
    Franck Bragigand (The Netherlands) is a painter who makes colour a medium for propaganda, using it to “restore daily life.” He has transformed numerous used objects into works of art and given new life to a primary school in Amsterdam, a tramway in Osaka and a café in the Grand Théâtre of St. Petersburg. During the Manif d’art, he will create a site-specific object in collaboration with the City of Québec and the Consulate General of the Netherlands

    On the street, she sketches small portraits that she subsequently frames. Scattered throughout the city, we discover them by accident, like small visual whispers amid the cacophony of our urban setting. A slender thread linking artist and public.

    Richard Martel (Québec, Québec) Itineration and performance
    Itineration May 1, 2008 from 6 to 10 p.m. between Espaces GM 840 and 509. Performance May 7 at 5 p.m. at Espace GM 509
    A major player in performance in Québec, Richard Martel sees artistic practice as a system of experimentation and transgression. Along with a collective action presented at the opening of the Manif, he proposes a solo performance highlighting the singularity of his work in art-action.

    Ana Rewakowicz (Montréal, Québec)
    Inflatable structure / interactive exchange
    May 2 at 11 a.m. at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and May 28 at 5 p.m. at Espace GM 509
    Originally from Poland, Ana Rewakowicz explores displacement and cultural differences in a piece that explores the concept of inhabiting. Her sensual and nomadic inflatable structures create links between architecture and the body. The immense inhabitable balloon that she proposes for our collective habitation is like a proposal for alternative social interchange
