Projection | Out of Chaos, an Artist’s Journey in Haiti

As part of the Annual Conference of the Haitian Studies Association, le Centre d’Art hosts the screening of Out of Chaos, an Artist’s Journey in Haiti, a documentary by Pascal Giacomini, Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at 7:00 pm, in the presence of the director .

 

Invited by the Ghetto Biennale of Port au Prince, the multimedia artist Pascal Giacomini spends a month in the community of Grand Rue. He works there a month, using only what he can find and recycle to create three large sculptures, exhibited at the end of the festival with local artists. He takes advantage of the experience to show the daily life of the ghetto. He interviews artists, locals and others; and tries to show the source of the amazing Haitian creative energy, which mixes the country’s revolutionary history, voodoo, and the traumatic experience of the earthquake. What prompted artists to turn the gravas into art. It is the happy tale of an indestructible spirit.
With the participation of : Eugene André, David Boyer, Jean-Herard Céleur, Don Cosentino, Edwige Danticat, Philppe Dodard, Edouard Duval Carrié, Pascal Giacomini, Jean Baptiste Jean-Joseph, Michèle Manuel, Pascale Monnin, and the Community of the Grand Rue and the Ghetto Biennial.
