Weaving the existing. Giorgia Volpe
24 Mar 2016 – 29 May 2016
Giorgia Volpe, Les Mains 2013
graphite on paper
Organized by Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Giorgia Volpe has since 1998 lived in Quebec City, where she has taught drawing, printmaking and photogram at Meduse. This first survey of the artist’s career encompasses performance, action art, drawing, sculpture, photography, installations and video.
Volpe often relies on weaving, a technique that runs through her entire oeuvre. Fibres—paper, plastic, recycled material, textiles—are used to create works in which the material, traces of text and other motifs nuance the meaning of the work. Because Volpe completes few finished works, her art is often shown in a temporary state, awaiting further transformations. This exhibition represents the suspension in time of her process.
