Marjorie Le Berre: one-night action

Wednesday 22 October, 2014, 6 to 10 pm, at Alice Yard

Artist Marjorie Le Berre, in dialogue with Alice Yard, invites you to view, for one night only, an installation developed from her collaborative investigations at Maracas Bay.

As suggested by the artist, “Based on the rhythm of the tide and on the ideas of ‘repetition and difference’ of Deleuze,” the project consists of a series of drawings produced over a week in collaboration with fishermen and children at Maracas Bay. The drawings consist of recordings of the movement of the tide, the swell, when the ropes of moored pirogues touch paper placed on the shore, making marks on the paper and in the sand. Local Crown brand blue laundry pigment, which is also used for blue devil performances, was rubbed on the ropes to produce the drawings. The titles reflect the time of day and dates. 

Le Berre is a contemporary artist based in France, and has been visiting Trinidad reconnecting with the site of her childhood memories of living here, contrasting them to her current investigations of the island. She is concerned with nomadism and identity.
