CALQ Residency Maryse Larivière


  • CCA 350 Sauchiehall St Glasgow, G2 3JD United Kingdom

Over the course of her residency, Maryse Larivière will produce an art installation, performance, and publication, each enacting a series of political scenarios relating to sovereignty and resistance. Titled Under The Cave of the Winds, the project will function like a portal wherein the art and politics of Scotland and Quebec collide.

Maryse Larivière is an artist whose practice encompasses dreamed realities, psychoanalytic examinations, reposts to published work, reiterations and collaborations. Her work inhabits performance, video, sculpture and writing, among other media. She has recently exhibited at Parker Branch (London), Clint Roenisch (Toronto), and Cité des Arts (Paris). Her unorthodox art writings have appeared in Esse arts+opinions, Pelt and Pages of Vapour. Originally from Montreal, Larivière received her MFA from the prestigious program at Guelph University, Canada.

CCA is into its ninth year of its exchange programme with the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres in Québec (CALQ). Each year one Scottish and one Quebecois artist engage in a three-month exchange, focusing on contemporary music, sound installation, audio art and media arts sectors.
