Question 3: When did you begin to actively create art?

Transcription


I really had two periods. When I was younger, after high school, I studied one year at a kind of school of fine crafts, it was called l’Institut des arts appliqués, in Montreal. I really liked that year of schooling but it wasn’t really what I needed. So I didn’t pursue it at the time. But I always retained an interest in making things. So in the next few years I just made things here and there, for the pleasure of doing it. Then when I began to study seriously, I added to what I was already doing a deeper questioning, a deeper research. So that was like a new start. Then perhaps in the 1990s, I would say, I began a significant production.
