Information on the activity

Hugues Charbonneau Art Gallery Book

From April 21 to May 29, 2021.

“To share a story is more than retelling; it is work and a methodology. Joanne Archibald defines storywork as an experiential approach of learning by feeling, thinking, and doing; as an embodied process. For this exhibit I have selected artworks to share my approach to performance art and making as storywork, from nearly a decade when I lived in BRKLYN, (2010-19).” - Maria Hupfield

Storywork is the third experimental undertaking of Maria Hupfield at Galerie Hugues Charbonneau. The title of this exhibition is about carrying living knowledge through our actions, clothing, words and how we live. The items in the gallery are both sculptures and live performance components, activated by the artist’s touch.
