Multidisciplinary artist Catherine Sylvain creates artworks that question our relationship with the world. Point d’origine is her third integration of art with architecture project, after those for the Grands-Vents elementary school, in Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac, and the Memphrémagog regional sports centre, in Magog. Solo exhibitions include Galerie Horace (Sherbrooke, 2006), Expression, centre d’exposition de Saint-Hyacinthe (2005), and the CIRCA exhibition centre (Montréal, 2004). In group exhibitions, her work has appeared at the Liverpool Biennale (2010) and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (2008). Educated at Université Laval (BFA, 1999) and Concordia University (MFA, 2003), Sylvain teaches visual arts at CÉGEP de Saint-Hyacinthe.
The artwork emphasizes the unifying aspect of sport and the idea of community. It is an aluminum bas-relief with a fragmented image that depicts silhouettes of schematized figures forming a pattern.
