C’est avec un très grand plaisir que nous vous annonçons le lancement de notre livre Everglades.
Daniel H. Dugas er Valerie LeBlanc

Everglades est un essai poétique sur l’impact de l’Anthropocène, époque durant laquelle l’activité humaine perturbe l’environnement. Dans leur exploration des marécages protégés, les auteurs recueillent les bruits ambiants et documentent la moindre découverte afin de produire des poèmes et des textes inspirés des lieux. Se construit une cartographie qui donne à voir la complexité du territoire.

Tiré d’un projet multimédia qui comprend des vidéopoèmes et des marches sonores, ce livre invite à une prise de conscience du passage de l’être humain dans la biosphère et de ses conséquences, des traces qu’il y dépose; il propose une réflexion sensible et troublante sur la communion avec l’environnement et les forces de la nature.

Everglades is a poetic essay on the impact of the Anthropocene. This new geological time period in which we live, has been brought about by changes that human activity has imposed on the environment. In their exploration of protected wetlands, the authors gathered ambient sounds and documented the road less travelled to produce poems and texts inspired by these locations. This work constructs a map of the complexity of the region.

Drawn from a multimedia project made up of videopoems and soundwalks, this book invites an awareness of human passage in the biosphere; the consequences and the traces that are left behind. It proposes a sensitive and disturbing reflection on communion with the environment and the forces of nature.

I am happy to have my video Monocultural Stutter selected to be part of Underpinnings, the NSCAD Alumni Exhibition. The reception will be on Friday, December 1st 2017 from 5 – 7:30 at Anna Leonowens Gallery, Halifax, NS.

About Underpinnings: NSCAD Alumni Exhibition: This year marks 130 years since Anna Leonowens first opened the Victoria School of Art in 1887. Since then, NSCAD has maintained its reputation as one the most influential art schools under many names, locations, and presidents. NSCAD has provided the educational underpinnings for the studio practice of numerous significant Canadian artists, cultural workers, and creative thinkers.

For the 2017 Alumni Biennial, the NSCAD Alumni Association invited former students to reflect on the core values and pedagogy that have created the legacy for which NSCAD is known. Coordinated by NSCAD alumna Tori Fleming, this large, salon-style exhibition includes work by more than 100 alumni artists and designers.

On view at AIRIE Nest Gallery from October 1, 2017 – January 15, 2018: About Florida Bay, featuring work by Houston Cypress / Mark Dion / Valerie George / Nick Gilmore / Jason Hedges / Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel H. Dugas / Nathaniel Sandler / Magnus Sodamin

About Florida Bay: 95% of Florida Bay is located in the Everglades National Park, and has undergone a series of ecological changes that have severely altered the natural ecosystem. To support the state’s agricultural water needs, the water was rerouted and no longer flows into the Bay, causing severe environmental issues and loss of native wildlife. About Florida Bay is a group exhibition in response to the unpredictability of this environmental dilemma, in which nine artists strive to capture the historical significance of this contested area while also featuring a sense of nostalgia and raising concerns about the future.

In addition to new work form our artists, this exhibition contains archival photographs are on loan courtesy of the South Florida Collections Management Center. In a unique partnership with AIRIE, Miccosukee Reverend Houston Cypress of Love the Everglades Movement presents sacred waters borrowed from the water cycle. Gladesman Glen Simmons’ photographs, notebook and carving generously provided by anthropologist Laura Ogden and specimens courtesy of Deborah Mitchell.

About Florida Bay is curated by Deborah Mitchell, artist and Executive Director, AIRIE, Inc. About Florida Bay is the third exhibition held in the newly renovated AIRIE Nest, made possible by a grant from the Knight Arts Challenge. AIRIE programming is also supported by a Culture Builds Florida grant and by a Hannibal Cox grant from Miami-Dade County.Works contained in this exhibition do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the National Park Service.

Opening reception and informal tours are offered on Sunday, October 8th, 1-3pm

Sundays in the Park ecology discussion and sculpting workshop Sunday, October 22, 1-3pm

All events are free and open to the public, open daily from 9-5pm

Everglades
À partir de leur exploration du parc national des Everglades, Daniel H. Dugas et Valerie LeBlanc cartographient dans cet essai poétique les effets de la présence humaine sur le milieu naturel, les traces qu’elle y dépose. Everglades est une ode à la beauté, à la fragilité et à la résilience d’une nature aux prises avec une espèce envahissante, la nôtre.

Through their exploration of the Everglades National Park, Daniel H. Dugas and Valerie LeBlanc document, in this poetic collection, the effects of human presence in the natural world and the traces left behind. Everglades is an ode to the beauty, the fragility and the resilience of nature faced with the invasiveness of a particular species, ours.
