Fonte presents large-scale marble and metal sculpture in which the disruptions of an ecological landscape are revealed as transformation processes, of digging and depositing, shaping and aggregating. Her work explores the uses and misuses of marble and its extraction, drawing a parallel between human and geological time. Starting with the material transformation of stone, the works give shape to forms that highlight their plasticity and the dislocation of their components.

Artist bio:

Born in Montreal in 1957, Marie-France Brière graduated with an MFA at the Université du Québec à Montréal in the 1980s. During this period she also spent a long period abroad in Pietrasanta, Italy where she studied techniques for carving stone. This material has remained an integral part of her practice throughout her career. Her sculpture practice has been supported by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Canada Council for the Arts, and she was also awarded the Prix Louis-Comtois in 1996.
