AXENÉO7 welcomes artist Marjorie Le Berre (Saint-Nazaire, France) for a research and creation residency from November 8, 2021 to January 8, 2022, as part of a partnership resulting from a cross-residencies agreement concluded between the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) and le Lieu Unique (Nantes, France).

“The course is built over time. Nothing is pre-written, the departure as well as the arrival are blurred, so that one can at any moment be free enough to branch off, and review the course from another point of view. Because this is also what her work is about: to travel, to rub shoulders with the outside, with the people who make it up.”
