The work of Ève Breton Roy mainly revolves around the notion of repetition in the creative process and the production of artists’ books. Various mundane elements from the everyday life take shape in her series of works, drawings, or in the book itself as an object. The latter is used in different ways, sometimes in its conventional form, sometimes in the form of a sculpture mirroring its inner workings and methods of transmission. In fact, the artist considers books as “objects of meaning”, a particular way of shaping and understanding our thoughts. She uses their formal features to further explore this familiar language and encourage dialogue. At Atelier Graff, Ève Breton Roy will discuss both her artistic and bookbinding practices. She will attempt to demonstrate how these two activities, although very different, deeply influence each other. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, October 17 at 6 pm, in French (free admission).

Ève Breton Roy lives and works in Anse-Saint-Jean, Bas-Saguenay. She holds an MFA questioning the book as an object and its formal characteristics as a materialization of thought from Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (2008). Since 2006, she owns and works at Terrain vague, a bookbinding studio and artists’ books publisher. She produces unique original volumes while pursuing both her research and artistic practice.
