In the summer of 2017, artists Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel H. Dugas set out to interpret the landscape of the Fundy Biosphere. They were working in reference to the historical Apollo 11 moon landing in an attempt to weigh the relevance and beauty of our home planet. Over the course of three years LeBlanc and Dugas documented their exploration of this coastal landscape through recorded images, sound and notes. fundy, a video-installation, is the end-product of this years-long project exploring ideas of ecology, place and time within the Fundy Biosphere.

About the Artists

Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel H. Dugas have worked collaboratively on media projects, performances, and writing since 1990. They also continue to carry out individual creative projects. While the range of their individual works varies according to social, economic and philosophical concerns, their collaborations often carry an ecological focus. The two have exhibited and presented widely throughout North America, Europe, and Australia. They recently exhibited Habitat, curated by Jonathan Lamy. This trilogy of video, audio and photo projects was produced in the context of artist residencies in various nature reserves in South Florida. Habitat includes Everglades, Oasis (The Deering Estate) and Around Osprey (The Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast at Osprey). The Habitat installation was presented at the Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen as part of the Festival international du cinéma francophone en Acadie.

This is the first presentation of fundy in Atlantic Canada. The artists would like to thank all of the organizations and individuals that helped make this project possible: artsnb, Fresh AIR: NB Parks Artists in Residence, Tourism, Heritage and Culture – New Brunswick.
