About the exhibit
femmes volcans forêts torrents features nine women artists, currently living in Québec, whose works are permeable to the territories that they investigate. Attentive to the natural elements before their eyes and the living communities with which they interact, these artists root their reflections in various ecosystems, from the waters of the St. Lawrence River to the soils of the tundra.

They make us aware of the fragility of water; have us listen to the heartbeats of Earth and the pulse of volcanoes; and remind us that trees communicate with each other in forests, that migrating birds bear stories of diaspora, that each plant bears the marks of its species’ displacements, that all human beings contain torrents within them.

Today, as the glaciers slowly melt, as the number of non-human living beings is dwindling, we must expose and amplify the traces of their noises and their fragile presence as a form of clearly perceptible warning. Although art cannot solve today’s ecological problems, these works offer us opportunities to make up for our inattention and lack of sensitivity to the diverse worlds of the living.
