"Vivre sans toi ? ” avec Madeleine Rousseau
Film & video
Madeleine Rousseau takes her inspiration from daily life—what she observes or what preoccupies her—making associations and seeing metaphors in this reflection. In her video she describes how she sees examples of migration everywhere in images of beauty but also of suffering. In "Vivre sans toi ?, a large panel work, she contemplates the cutting down of trees in the downtown area of Ottawa to make way for parking lots and road widening. This results in a migration of wildlife and nature further away from the city for the benefit of motorists. This in turn becomes a metaphor for the great human displacements in search of a better life.
