Free admission Reservations required

Presented as part of MOMENTA Biennale de l’image:

In this workshop, artist and filmmaker Victoria Catherine Chan invites participants from all walks of life to discover the ways in which the body feels waves and vibrations amplified by technological devices. The activity responds to Jamilah Sabur’s exhibition The Mountain Sings Underwater, which travels among various levels of perception and explores the links among geological space, individual experiences, and the unseen forces of nature. Although invisible and inaudible to humans, vibrations contribute to many meteorological and climatic phenomena. This workshop aims to broaden how we perceive them in a spirit of inclusion, dialogue, and sharing.

• Workshop duration: 1 hour
• Free and bilingual
• The workshop is offered from October 1 - 3 from 10 am to 6 pm.
• The workshop includes a guided tour of Jamilah Sabur's exhibition The Mountain Sings Underwater
