Jérôme Havre’s practice concentrates on issues of identity, communities and territories, investigating the political and sociological processes of contemporary life. While artist-in-residence, he is working on the production of a long video utilizing puppets crafted for the project, that is set amongst the historical painting and objects of the AGO.
Blackboards long served to spread or record information, and the materials used to make them have varied across time and cultures. While blackboards are becoming obsolete in our schools, Havre has recreated one here at the AGO in the spirit of this long tradition. You are invited to interact with and to surround his photographic works with your writings, quotations, dialogues, graffiti and drawings.
