- Mona Hakim

Sensitive to memory, loss, and emotion, Judith Bellavance found the subject for her series Le goût de la durée in an Irish community in the Gaspé – more specifically, in a church basement frozen in time. According to Mona Hakim, Bellavance reconstructs “a personal story through the marks of wear that the site bears and the emblematic objects that it contains.” Favouring a form of “magnification,” she bears witness to the users’ desire to “care for” their living environment. At a time when the fate of our patrimonial and religious architecture is being challenged, writes Hakim, Le goût de la durée sensitively and poetically evokes reflections on our relationship with history and memory – on a heritage just under the surface.
