Sarah Wendt and Pascal Dufaux share an art practice that takes form in sculpture, media art, installation and dance. Since 2016, they have developed and presented projects that turn a lens onto the body, space and objects. Their collaborative methodology seeks to imbue their projects with strange forms of temporality and heightened articulations of labour to draw forward an environment that melds science fiction to reality. In their work, moving images meet choreography and sculpture to create a world where motion as material loosens and reframes the value of human energy.
Their work has been presented at artist-run centres, art museums and dance festivals in Canada, in Europe and in the UK, including: Axenéo7, Gatineau, Quebec; Confederation Centre Art Gallery, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; Symposium de Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec; Mois Multi Festival, City of Quebec; OFFTA Festival d’Arts Vivants, Montreal, Quebec; Tangente Danse, Montreal, Quebec; Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal, Quebec, Musée d'Art Contemporaine des Laurentides, St. Jerome, Quebec, Festival FURIES, Marsoui, QC; MacLaren Art Centre, Ontario; Take me Somewhere Festival, Glasgow, UK; Theatre Kampnagel, Hamburg, DE; and the Rooms - Art Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador, St. John's, NL.
They live and work as uninvited guests on the traditional land of the Haudenosaunee, Mohawk and St. Lawrence Iroquoian inTiohtiá:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal.
They are co-founding members of les Ateliers Casgrain.
