Drawing, Contemporary Art

Cet ouvrage présente trente ans du travail de Renée Lavaillante, artiste québécoise qui se dédie au dessin. Nathalie Miglioli y analyse les différents rôles de la ligne dans l’exploration que conduit l’artiste. Comment la ligne définit-elle l’acte de dessiner ? Quels rapports entretient-elle avec les sens (la vue ou l’aveuglement, le toucher, l’ouie), ou les actions convoquées (marcher, raconter, joncher, couper) ? «Au fil des projets, la ligne relève des trajets, révèle des parcours, représente le hasard du mouvement ou marque le passage du temps. » (N.M.)

This work presents thirty years of the work of Renée Lavaillante, a Quebec artist who dedicates herself to drawing. Nathalie Miglioli analyzes the different roles of the line in the exploration that leads the artist. How does the line define the act of drawing? What relationship does it have with the senses (sight or blindness, touch, hearing), or actions summoned (walking, telling, littering, cutting)? “As the projects progress, the line is a journey, reveals routes, represents the chance of movement or marks the passage of time. “(N.M.)
