“This image is part of a collective exhibition called Peut mieux faire. The concept was to create a piece from a cheap school notebook called cahier canada. This kind of notebook is used since many decades in Canadian schools till now. So we were 60 artists to use this kind of notebook as a starting point. The other constraint was to evoque Quebec city.”
“For myself, when I think about Quebec city, I think of the wind. Because the city is located on the top of a rock near the Saint-Lawrence river so there is a lot of wind. I did a collage from the pages of this notebook with photocopies of my hair. So I did a little character with the wind in his hair”
