UNE HEURE À LA RONDE by Ilana Pichon

ARTIST: Ilana Pichon assisted by Charlie Rae LOCATION: No Fun Club, 576 Wall Street [South-facing wall] MURAL TITLE: UNE HEURE À LA RONDE ARTIST STATEMENT: The design for this mural takes inspiration in geographical rhythms and dialogs in an organic way. Based on aerial views of the territories within one hour around Winnipeg, there will be eight cardinal points, each circle composed of the superposition of two geographic samples translated into an image. These varieties of settlements/ life rhythms illustrate various kind of music and suggests the shape of a record sleeve (hinting at No Fun Club’s purpose.) The French title talks about the one-hour distance it takes to get across most of the city (something I learned while living in Winnipeg for a couple months.) Ilana Pichon is a visual artist from Quebec City, Canada, born and raised in Switzerland. She graduated with a Master of Architecture from Laval University (Qc) in 2010. She has been awarded multiple grants from the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec for printmaking projects (2014, 2016, 2018) and recently received grants supporting video and artist books residencies by Québec City artist centres. Pichon’s practice is rhythmed by residencies and artworks are strongly influenced by in situ experiences, evident in both her silkscreen printing and large-scale murals. Her murals are located across Canada and her work has been shown solo in Winnipeg, Trois-Rivières and Quebec in 2019. Pichon’s artworks are part of Global Affairs Canada’s collection, Bibliothèque des Archives nationales du Québec’s heritage collection of artist books and Stewart Hall Gallery.
