This video present two installation pieces that were part of the exhibition "The tongue of Shadows" presented at G.A.S.P. in Brookline, MA and at the Gallery Joyce Yahouda in Montreal, Qc.
In those two in situe installations, I explore language as an adaptation tool by means of comparing vocabulary samples. I cut up and sew panels of canvas, a material once used to fabricate tents, mail or army bags − objects of itinerancy. I employ an immigrant craft of survival: sewing in the textile industry. Once a domain of my French Canadian ancestors upon their arrival in New England, Latino Americans have replaced them and now play a similar role in the American economy.
