The sensation of flight is at the heart of artist Maryse Arseneault’s project: L’art de s’envoler / Flyer For Flight. Attempts at capturing that feeling are how a trampoline becomes the main object in this interactive installation that invites the viewer to reconnect with their own childhood dreams where gravity was undone through sheer force of will and a good running jump. The gallery is transformed into a laboratory for the senses with a playful workout video, recorded meditation exercise and projected images of animals and people in mid-flight.
Following the opening of L’art de s’envoler […], the artist will explore Sudbury as she distributes miniature flyers (Flyer For Flight) in the city’s cafés and restaurants. She will also lead exercise and meditation activities in the city’s parks. parcs.
