The PHI Foundation’s Education team is offering a sound exploration workshop for young visitors, designed and led by guest artist Magali Babin.
This playful workshop will focus on sound improvisation and collective listening. It will take place within the art installation by Rirkrit Tiravanija, titled untitled 1996 (rehearsal studio no. 6) (2023), which is a functional music recording studio, and is presented as part of the current exhibition, JOUEZ/PLAY. Using the installation as a starting point, workshop participants will become makers of sound. This encounter occurs through the experience of playing and listening to sound.
Through the encounter, Magali Babin approaches listening as a tool for care, gathering and openness to difference. Between the acoustics of natural landscapes, social contexts and sonic reminiscence, the artist draws her materials to create atmospheres, installations and listening experiences. In her recent projects, Magali is interested in sound in the public sphere, collective listening and auditory memory in relation to living spaces. Her work has been presented in the form of concerts and performances at international festivals in Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Europe. Her sound installations have been included in solo and group exhibitions at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (Triennale Québécoise, 2011. Montréal), La Fabrique (2015. France), Mois Multi (2012/2019. Québec). She is currently pursuing a PhD in Studies and Practices of Art at UQAM.
