“To take interest in the stories and knowledge dispersed across the territory is to anchor oneself in ways of living that offer the potential for symbiosis. Although the notion of rurality does not refer to the same phenomenon for everyone, it acts as a backdrop in the practices that make up this exhibition; reflecting on natural and built spaces, highlighting the links and networks that unite all kinds of elsewheres, claiming the responsibility of caring for the land, looking at the rural imaginary. Contemplating what such environments can offer specifically to better construct new ways of creating, thinking and building relationships; that is what unfolds throughout the works presented here, brought together for the summer.”

-Laura Demers, curator
