Folie/Culture literally set the table with its Cahier Folie/Culture No. 11 – La normalité ostentatoire, inviting the public to a launch for this exciting new publication paired with a screening of the 2016 Folie/Culture One-Minute Videos. The Quebec City event was held November 30, and the Montreal launch on December 1.

Cahiers Folie-Culture are formally audacious, original publications broadly in the tradition of artist’s books. For this 11th edition, the team created a typically atypical object guaranteed to brighten up the most routine aspect of your daily life.

Many thanks to the 27 visual and literary artists who contributed:

Marie-Pier April, Christian Barré, Patrick Beaulieu, Soufia Bensaïd, Charles-Étienne Brochu, Emmanuel Chieze, Isabelle Clermont, Patrick Demazeau, Camille Deslauriers, Cécile De Verneuil, Elsa Ferry, Christyna Fortin, Julie Fournier-Lévesque, Marie-Claude Gendron, Annabelle Guimond Simard, Céline Huyghebaert, Roselyn Le Cours, Le Phare Source d’entraide, Danick Lizotte, Constant Ludens, Marc Maltais, André Marceau, Kareen Martel, Anna Jane McIntyre, Sylvie Nicolas, and Maude Pilon.

This year’s contributors shared their reflections on normality with singular contributions highlighting the constant shifts and flux involved in our consensual quotidian state. For the Cahier, the artists found ways to take the blandest aspects of our daily lives and make them joyfully ostentatious.

The 2016 Folie/Culture One-Minute Video selection, featuring work on the theme of—you guessed it—ostentatious normality, was also screened. Congratulations to our contributors:

Margot Beaudoin-Cabot and Sophie Cabot, Jean-François Brochu, Alexandre Demard, Gabriel Fortin, Fannie Giguère, François Harvey and Gaétan Reine, Bruno Lefebvre, Nadia NADÈGE, and Éloïse Plamondon-Pagé.
