Artist Lisa Sfriso was given unprecedented access to the 16mm archives of the Thousand Islands Yacht Club‘s Archive Fund as part of a call for artistic projects by the Centre d’archives de Laval. This unprecedented access allowed him to create this installation: the story of the years of vacationing on the banks of the Mille-Îles River in Laval, from 1945 to 1960, a look at the past in order to question what has become of our rivers and our shores today. The artist has drawn from the raw material photograms bearing the imprint of those who created it and the traces of past years, in an approach that aims to minimize the ecological footprint and to make us think about our natural ecosystems and their preservation over time.
