Director Biography - Helene Matte

Hélène Matte has been working in Québec City’s cultural scene for over twenty years as a multitalented free agent. She is a writer and a poet, a curator and a mediator, a performer and a visual artist, a mother and a citizen. Her artistic practice examines the notions of the voice, encounters and experimental poetry. She practices action art, draws and writes. While Matte has exhibited and performed in Europe, Canada and elsewhere in the Americas, she is also active locally, initiating, coordinating and supervising projects such as Apprentis poétes ! (Planète Rebelle, 2015) and Vies de Quartier (2016). Hélène Matte regularly publishes her work and has directed and produced numerous works of video poetry (Aurora Revelation, Fotogenia 2020)

The video is the result of my meeting with Marion Collé, a french circus artist who is both a tightrope walker and a poet. With her agility and wandering body, Marion is a banner of freedom in herself. During a creative residency in the countryside in two thousand nineteen, we started a project called today La constellation du gigot, which includes several poems, videos and performances.
