Participatory event and site-specific installation at articule.

The project “objet d’ailleurs” is an ongoing collection of stories from immigrants to Montréal or other cities in the world, about objects that remind them of their home country. During the event, and within the framework of special projects, visitors are invited to participate in the project: the artist (Brigitte Schuster) will be present to collect objects and stories from people who are new to Montréal. Objects and stories will be shown concurrently in articule's gallery space.

If you are not born in Montréal, please bring with you one personal possession from your home country. This should be an object that evokes for you personal, sentimental values, or feelings towards a place or certain memories. During the event, the artist will photograph the object and conduct a short interview with you about this object.
