Michel Gignac’s ‘Make Strange’ Exhibition

Michel Gignac’s ‘Make Strange’ Exhibition

Michel will be giving an artist's talk about his show, Make Strange, at the Yukon Arts Centre on Saturday, February 11 at 4pm. Come see this fascinating exhibition during the month of February 2017. 

Make Strange is a theatrical installation that catches viewers in the crossfire of confrontation. Be witness to a repeating dialogue of action, a silent scene that teeters between slapstick and the sinister. Through kinetic electronics and projection, the installation explores notions of mistrust, privacy and ownership”.

La Traviata- March 11 @ 10am

Violetta Valéry knows that she will die soon, exhausted by her restless life as a courtesan. At a party she is introduced to Alfredo Germont, who has been fascinated by her for a long time. Violetta choses a life with Alfredo and they enjoy their love in the country, far from society.

Alfredo’s father, Giorgio Germont, pays Violetta a visit. He demands that she separate from his son, as their relationship threatens his daughter’s impending marriage. Violetta’s resistance dwindles and she finally agrees to leave Alfredo forever. Only after her death shall he learn the truth about why she returned to her old life. But all the memories of home and a happy family can’t prevent the furious and jealous Alfredo from seeking revenge for Violetta’s apparent betrayal.

Violetta is dying. Her last remaining friend, Doctor Grenvil, knows that she has only a few more hours to live. Full of remorse, Germont has told his son about Violetta’s sacrifice. Alfredo wants to rejoin her as soon as possible. Violetta is afraid that he might be too late. But Alfredo does arrive and the reunion fills her with a final euphoria. Her energy and exuberant joy of life return. All sorrow and suffering seem to have left her—a final illusion, before death claims her.
