The Temporal Dialogues of

Odette Théberge

Artist Profile

Odette Théberge’s series of works entitled Mementos, Chroniques and Résonances, les murs se racontent are simultaneously embedded with vivid creative energy and a clear willingness to highlight the passage of time. The book-sculptures that initiated the Mementos series stem from a fortuitous discovery that led the artist to reflect on the relevance of books, the material place they hold in our lives and the gradual abandon they are subjected to.

A vivid corpus, of huge significance. Inspired by an event where a group of friends were invited to throw objects or papers in a campfire, meant to signify the end of a chapter in each of their lives, Odette Théberge found the remains of books among the cinders the next morning.
