A Vase with Pale Roses (Animations on Still life)

As a self-taught animator, Elisabeth Belliveau explores contemporary life through stop-motion animation and sculpture. For this year’s Festival, Belliveau presents four works on grunt gallery’s Mount Pleasant Community Art Screen: Still life with fallen fruit (2019), Troisieme (2017), Izanami (2017), and Ballroom (2016). Through movement and digital technology, Belliveau creates a stage to capture the life of objects that reference the Western canon, hierarchies, value, labour, and interdisciplinarity from a feminist material perspective. Teetering between the artificial and natural, her works consider what image-making is and can be while posing the question, “What are the politics involved when things come to the table?”
