The Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault participated in the project Se mouvoir dans l’archive / Moving through the archive, a production by Galerie UQO with choreographer, dramaturg and dancer Hanna Sybille Müller. In the fall of 2019, director/curator Marie-Hélène Leblanc invited Hanna Sybille Müller to work with the visual and textual archives produced by Galerie UQO since its inception in 2015. In this unusual project–a cross between dance and the visual arts–Hanna interpreted the gallery’s activities, movements and archives with a desire to question the medium of the exhibition and everything underlying it.
Over the course of the one-year project, the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault has featured the series Carnet d’une chorégraphe (A Choreographer’s Notebook)—a collection of gifs and short texts revealing the artist’s research and creative process, as well as the final performances. In tandem with collaborators Nate Yaffe and Lauren Semeschuk, Hanna Sybille Müller explores a variety of themes, including bodies during the COVID era, non-movement, and haptic documentation.
