Mémoires de la Filature2

Jean-Yves Vigneau


Mémoires de La Filature is an interview with Jean-Yves Vigneau on the history of La Filature, AXENÉO7 and DAÏMÔN. The artist's verve takes us on a journey through time, from the founding of AXENÉO7 to the birth of La Filature, while projecting us into the future around the expansion project. A true pillar of culture in the Outaouais region, Vigneau delves into his memories and gives us a personal story filled with anecdotes and humor.

The two-hour interview was broadcast in four 30-minute segments on Radio-Hull in late summer 2020.
