Biennale internationale du lin de Portneuf

Moulin de la Chevrotière
109, Rue De Chavigny
Deschambault-Grondines (Québec) GOA 1SO

The very existence of art challenges notions of useless versus productive work. Artists exhibiting at Moulin de la Chervrotière question this assessment through references to artistic traditions, domestic and textile work or other undervalued practices. Similarly questioning the attribution of value to materials themselves, the Biennale artists explore the physical properties of flax in all its forms and ask: is a material intrinsically valuable or is it a function of its abundance, rarity, usefulness, or historical or marketing value?
