Montreal artist launches her album Part One.

Elle Saw presents this fall the album Part One. In this solo project, the singer-songwriter explores sonic oscillations and granulations where electronics, alternative, synth-pop, pop art, ambient, noise and post-punk intersect. In performance, Elle Saw offers an audiovisual experience where the notion of identity and the claim to the right to equality are at the center of the theme. 

In the first part, La litanie des couvre-feux (The Litany of Curfews), a series of living boards, semi-improvised, semi-choreographed, produced by the Collectif B.L.U.S.H. Using the metaphor of drowning and rescue, B.L.U.S.H. takes the form of secular and committed rituals at the heart of which evolve hybrid characters who question the notion of gender. An approach inspired by ecofeminism that criticizes some of our contemporary realities and causes pollution of the oceans

Elle Saw is Ianna Book, a multidisciplinary Montreal artist from the visual arts. Desiring to create different visual arrangements in the collective space in order to provoke reflection, the artist seeks to express a critical aesthetic questioning the norms of landscape and conservative immobility. Through her creations, she expresses a multitude of feelings and unconventional realities to make room for new cultural elements that fit into the current social context. In music, the singer-songwriter has collaborated on various projects over the past few years, but it was in 2020 that Elle Saw began producing her very first solo album.

The collective presents the performance
The Litany of Curfews

B.L.U.S.H. is a women's collective made up of two visual artists, Annie Baillargeon and Isabelle Lapierre, and a sound designer, Marie-Hé lè ne Blay. Feminist, this group is an association which declares an open and free approach valuing collaboration. B.L.U.S.H. articulates its visual language at the same rate as its sound language and uses this interdisciplinarity to translate a vision of the world that is both holistic and plurivocal. It is with the urgency to act that the performers transform the pathetic state of society into rich visual and sound landscapes that build ephemeral and paradoxical universes, and which confront the world in which we live.
