Postcards to the Sky  (v. française plus bas)

We all cope with the loss of someone who is dear to us at

some point in our life. So many times does the desire

to be able to speak with them and share thoughts and

love surface back.  During the darkest months of the year

the need to be with our lost loved ones is even stronger.

The act of writing down our thoughts on a postcard and

sharing them with others can help heal the void left by those one we love.


Postcards to the sky is a participative ephemeral exhibit that explores light during the darker times and the liberation experienced when one opens its heart and share memories , love and joy with those loved ones who have passed in writing. As the light returns, the snow and ice will melt but the words and intentions will remain.

Bring your postcards and together we will tie them to the installation. E-mail them, drop  them, or mail them to me.  Spread the word. I look forward to read your words.

v. française

Nous vivons tous la perte d’un être chère à un moment ou un autre dans notre vie. Nombreuses sont les fois où le besoin de leur parler, d’échanger des pensées et de l’amour refait surface.  C’est souvent durant les longues nuits de l’hiver que le besoin d’être avec  eux se fait sentir plus fort. Le geste d’écrire nos pensées sur une carte postale et de les partager avec d’autres peut aider à combler le vide laissé par ceux qu’on aime.

Postcards to the sky est une exposition de Land Art qui se veut participative. Cette exposition éphémère explore la lumière durant la noirceur et le sentiment de libération que l’on expérimente lorsque l’on ouvre son cœur et qu’on partage, à travers des mots ses souvenirs, son amour et sa joie à ceux qui nous ont quittés. Au fur et à mesure que la lumière reviendra, la glace fondra mais les mots et les intentions eux…resterons.

Faites-moi parvenir vos cartes postales, on les installera ensemble. Ou encore envoyer les moi par courriel ou  par la poste. Passez le mot

​Au plaisir de vous lire.
