Interview: My Own Private Dante’s Disneyland (Red Bird, Opening Feb. 11)

February 9, 2010

Jacinthe Loranger is a silkscreening and installation artist based in Montreal. Known for her psychedelic landscapes and colourful characters, My Own Private Dante’s Disneyland is a series of photographic self portraits that poses the question: what if Alice fell down that rabbit hole not as a child, but as a woman in her thirties?

We asked Jacinthe a few questions about how drawing figures into her work…

D&D: Where does your inspiration for this show, and your work in general come from these days?

JL: Un sac de crottes de fromage peut être pour moi une grande source d’inspiration au même titre qu’une peine d’amour. J’aime attribuer une personnalité  à des objets. En fait, j’imagine que ça vient pas mal de la culture asiatique.

D&D: How does drawing factor into your silkscreen work? What is your process when you start a project like this (do you work from sketches, use source photos, etc) How much is planned and how much happens by chance?

JL: Je travaille avec le dessins depuis très longtemps. En fait, je suis vraiment plus à l’aise avec des crayons qu’avec un pinceau. Tout mon travaille en sérigraphie depuis les cinq dernières années, c’est du dessin. Je sais pas mal le résultat à l’avance dans ma tête. Je pense en séparation de couleur.

D&D: Do you consider yourself a drawer, or is it just a way to get to the final silkscreened work?

JL: C’est bizzare mais non je ne me considère pas comme une dessinatrice. En fait,je dessine mal! J’ai juste vraiment du fun!

Le dessin fait partie intégrante de ma pratique mais j’essaie de ne pas me définir selon mon médium. J’ai quand même l’impression de toujours reproduire mes dessin que ce soit en photo ou en sculpture.
