Emma and Jennifer didn’t know each other. The first time they met for this project, they decided that they would become pen pals. Each gave two notes/ letters every other week. These notes served as a starting point for the rest of the project.
Jennifer Bélanger is interested in the accidental observer and the ordinary and daily as matter for art. Bélanger has a BFA from Université de Moncton and an MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She has worked as Programming Coordinator at Galerie Sans Nom, Director of Imago artist-run print studio and has curated several exhibitions in Acadie. She is currently the printmaking professor in the Fine Arts department at Université de Moncton.
Emma Delaney (she/her) is a female artist from Albert County, New Brunswick, whose work fits within a conceptual art framework. She has recently completed her Bachelors of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University, and works throughout the Bay of Fundy region. She has a multidisciplinary practice focusing on video work, puppetry, installation and daily drawings. Her practice incorporates personal investigations surrounding physical and mental health, past experiences & queerness. She has spent over a year working in a small fishing community, working with other artists and growing her practice through learning new trades such as raku ceramics and rug hooking. All of these learnings have influenced her overall relationships to self and identity in relationship to landscape.
This project is presented as part of the 35th edition of FICFA with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Province of New Brunswick and the City of Moncton.
