2FIK COURT LA CHASSE-GALERIE
The traditional loggers of the mythical Chasse-galerie (The Flying Canoe) are metamorphosed into immigrants as the multidisciplinary artist blows brisk gusts of zaniness over questions of identity. Kitsch, queer, trad. For three days in a row 2Fik will transform the Place des Festivals into a huge outdoor photo studio. On the first day he will assemble his set and costumes and prepare for the photo session. On the second day he will embody and immortalize the array of characters he has developed over the years, his fantasized alter egos — men and women, Arabs, individuals from both France and Quebec, Muslims, Catholics, atheists. On the third day he will complete a photo montage of his audaciously reimagined Chasse-galerie. An extraordinary event accessible to one and all.
* 8 AM. to 8 PM.
