RESEARCH DARA HUMNISKI & AMY VAN KEEKEN

July 2016, 13th.  @ BAM Residency. Two supertalents traveled from Edmonton to Paris for a creative residency project at Break'Art Mix. Amy van Keeken and Dara Humniski spent a couple of weeks sketching out the beginnings of a beautiful music & visual art project, hunting sounds and images from around Paris and using them to create experimental sounds, writings, and visual works. Back in Edmonton, they have been recording the work that came out of this residency so keep your ears perked for that in the coming months! In the mean time, here are a few images from their time at BAM, their exploration of the city, and their performance of the work in progress. Watching the way that these two felt their way around the city made it feel sacred, like they were looking through the outer layer of the city and seeing through into its veins and its soundwaves and its ghosts.

RESEARCH CHRISTIAN HANSEN & MOLLY FLOOD

MAY/JUNE 2016.  @ BAM Residency. A whirlwind of creative activity at BAM! Toronto musicians Christian Hansen and Molly Flood came by for a few days to work on a recording project with Doug.

RESEARCH WILKOSZ & WAY

April & May 2016.  @ BAM Residency. Earlier this spring, Break'Art Mix welcomed the brilliant photographic duo Wilkosz + Way for a creative residency. Marta Wilkosz and Jeff Way have been based in Berlin since 2012, but established their practice in Canada for many years before that. Their project was a love letter to the city and citizens of Paris, a tribute to the more unconventionally beautiful elements of this incredible place and an archive of those that we will not have with us forever. 
In their own words: 
"As commercial photographers, we spend most of our practice under the guidance of an art director in a commercial field. This process works very well in a commercial sphere, but it can quickly turn into a simple routine as the concepts in questions are always dictated by a narrow spectrum of ideas. We are fashion photographers by profession, and as such are in a field of beauty ideals dictated by commerce. 
This project was started in Berlin, born from our need to separate ourselves from the requirements of a client or art director, and to break away from usual fashion conventions, while focusing on a subject that has proven to be full of depth and social layers, and we were curious about how this would play out in Paris. 
Under the guidance of the city, we want to photograph the elderly. We are interested in their clothing, the way they put it all together, and how different it all looks from contemporary dress. The vintage oversized coats that are often too big for their body frames. The great hats and accessories. The comfortable walking shoes. Their silhouettes are very interesting to us. These photos will be quick moments in time, capturing a passing generation, archiving their style to be reflected upon later, when it’s no longer so common."
There will be an exhibition in the early autumn of the work created during this 10-day residency. Please keep your ears open for an announcement and join us for the opportunity to hang out with these wonderful people.

EXHIBITION JULIE GUILLAUME

March 2016, 22nd.  @ BAM Residency. The visual artist Julie Guillaume reinvented with "Reprises" her last installation of volumes in ceramic: « Silencieuses » .
The silent group here transformed and  singled out. Each element took life, escaped its mutism by unveiling its story and its proper characteristics. 
Julie Guillaume revealed their fragilities, dug in the soul of her forms and extracted from them the promise of a rebirth. The pieces welcomed different materials; one enclosing seeds sprouting, the other one supported by ropes, another linked to its stand by a game of drawn shadows.  

By these fragilities, she recomposed the space setting and looked for giving them a lighter and safer presence, while the "Silencieuses" underlined the balance and the flirt with danger.

PRESENTATION JOHN JAMES

March 2016, 13th.  @ BAM Residency. John James presented her Armours after 3 weeks of Residency . 
Who’s John James ? A woman, a man, a divine creature,… Let's just say a condense and palpable dreamer-cum-doer.
More than a jeweler or a designer, John James stitches up the mystic ropes of unique materials: the seen, the unseen and creates wearable sculptures ; talismans for the nowadays - even tomorrow - generations. 
Forger of contemporary armour, visualy alike plastron, shaping a charisma to the ones who dare. Indeed the pieces are for the ones who chose it!
In the design a liberation of the mind & body, a powerful esthetic, a high strength and above all a sensitive playing with the boundaries.
Armours to prepare the body for a fight. A design pro-active ! 
The word « warrior » should be overused here. John James elevates and prepares us to dig in our inner world while protected by a new kind of Talisman. 
An artist bursting the surface and caring about our inside by creating a wearable talisman in order to support profound emotions.  

Thank you everyone for coming, for your interest in The project and for contributing in many ways. 
John James, thank you for creating armours/talismans to build us strong but still sensitive. Your art work is an opportunity for women and men to heal and to regenerate. Purposeful & Powerful!

CONCERTS THE WILD STAGE BEFORE HALLOWEEN

30th October, 2013. After trying tea and coffee without success of awakens, I can officially announce that the night has been savage !The BAM’s residency hosted the “Wild stage before Halloween”- A live music session, disguised and wiiiiiillllld .The spooky stage roared with The Buns, Emilienne Apple, Clint is Gone , David Simard and Fiancés. Michael Kershnar sprayed for the event a powerful Coyote face to bring an additional tune . 

READING CLOE MARCOUX

24th October, 2013. Oh dear, Some stardust was dropped on the BAM’S Residency… Cloe Marcoux froze time and took us on the road of her imagination, to spaces held dear and meetings hardly forgot with the sharing of her pictures, drawings, song and poetry. A very young (21!) and gifted artist, with a wise mind and old soul. You might still have the chance to cross her path in Paris for the next few days before she hitchhikes away through Europe, bikes through Morocco, and then rides wild horses into sea of sand...

4th October, 2013. Out of this feeling of fullness, of harvest, something very exciting is being born into the world this coming week. In May, David Simard recorded an EP with some fantastic players in Montréal and it is now available online with the option of a pre-order. The limited edition 10" vinyl, with beautiful letter-pressed jackets custom-made by All Sorts Press, will be mailed to your door as something to look forward to in the dreary month of January. Finally - a cure for those vinyl shakes!We celebrated the online and pre-sale launch in a very intimate show at Petit Théâtre du Bonheur to finally end the festivities at the BAM’s Residency.David will be continuing the launch with a tour through Europe starting October 9th, with shows in Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands and France.
