In my bath, I am asking myself questions about how bridges hold, what love is all about... and the essence of human being is to not understand everything.

Further information

"An amused agitator, Sylvie Laliberté prefers to describe herself as ‘generous’ when someone pins the label ‘narcissist’ on her. True, a project like this demands a certain kind of inward-looking and communication with the other, a kind of investment of profligate economy of operation. And all that takes place with a ‘truly false’ offensive candour. ‘I record small, select moments. They are shot on the fly in the subject’s life. I am the subject. And I speak in a completely offhand manner. I capture floating moments on a fine volume of water’. ‘My work is unusual in this sense: it suits me. I can sing, strut about and say things: "A sitting woman, no matter where, is already that. It’s often elegant if you want to cross your legs. I cross them’". Sylvie Laliberté."
