Colette Jacques

Based in the northern community of Larder Lake, Colette Jacques creates installation and performance works for both gallery and outdoor settings. For the past several years, Colette Jacques’ artistic expression has focused on her aboriginal heritage, which is deeply anchored in Mother Earth and guided by the Great Spirit that is the spirit of sharing, encounters, and love. The artist’s Native roots are evident in her work, whether appearing on the streets of New York City as "Wolf Man" (Homme loup) or offering up a "Cry of the earth" (Cri de la terre) in Brazil. "Colette Jacques’ performance, with its obsessively recurring sounds and free flowing movements, is hypnotic and leads to a profound spiritual and artistic experience." – from a description of the work she created for the residency project "Parallaxe", a project of the Association des groupes en arts visuels francophones (AGAVF)
