Laure Bourgault

Autorésidences

Autorésidences is a remote residency program created by the AXENÉO7 artist-run centre in the exceptional context of the COVID-19 pandemic to continue to support research and development of current art practices.

Laure Bourgault is an artist, researcher and co-editor of Cigale magazine. Interested in the knotwork that ties the imaginary to the political, she reactivates archival documents in her artistic practice through the use of drawings, videos, installations, performances and dramatic texts. In parallel with her artistic practice, Laure also researches the agency of immaterial imagery. Through this research, she wants to illuminate the manner in which artists, mystic women or art historians, have profited from their dreams, visions or fantasies to foil logocentric models and narratives.
