The Métis-sur-Mer 200th Anniversary Celebrations Organizing Committee and Les Jardins de Métis/Reford Gardens are pleased to invite you to the opening of Danièle Routaboule’s exhibition: Métis Landscapes Through Time.
The fruit of a two-year artist in residence program at Les Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens, Montreal artist Danièle Routaboule explores the passage of time and the evolution of the landscapes of Metis. Landscapes change and are transformed through natural processes and human actions. They overlay each other in such a way that the landscape is often compared to a “palimpsest”, a very old document on parchment where the original texts were effaced to make way for a new piece of writing. This exhibition explores the notions of landscape, time, transformation and landscape changes of seven local landmarks chosen because they are at the confluence of land and sea. The artist integrates collages of archival documents and stories told at each venue by some of the community’s lifelong residents.
