Her primary goal is to explore presence, a concept she's been attracted to since she began practising in the late '70s.
From Feb. 25 to March 1, she will be in Sudbury, creating a series of “tailored” performances, named by the industry as “infiltrating practices.”
“Infiltrative art is made up of artistic practices that operate within the realm of the real by an investment of energy in the social body,” a media release stated. “The processes of infiltrative art favour a diversity of aesthetic concerns and an open and constructive attitude.”
Her visit to Sudbury is supported by La Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario. To help her capture Sudbury in her performances, Tourangeau will be getting to know the city through those living here. She will also head an intensive performance art workshop for Sudburians interested in exploring the genre.
