Comment

Elisabeth Belliveau’s interdisciplinary practice braids art history and everyday life, employing intuition, curiosity and material exploration. Her recent stop-motion work takes the form of a trilogy exploring themes of still-life and momento mori. Each of the three animations begin with a quote from the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector : “All the world began with a yes. One molecule said yes to another molecule and life was born.”
