Sonate pour le loup (2003)

 

 

               

 

Ce site est destin頠 Dixie, notre chienne-louve qui s'est subitement 鴥inte vers 2 heures le matin du 17 mai 2005. Elle avait dix ans.

Dixie est n饠ࠊoliette, issue de la famille cr驥 par le l駥ndaire 鬥veur 㯵tou 䥠Saint-Alexis-de- Montcalm, c鬨bre pour avoir r驮troduit le loup gris dans les lign饳 de husky apr賠avoir lui-mꭥ 鴩 sauv頰ar un loup lors d'un s骯ur initiatique dans le grand nord. Dixie a pass頍 son enfance avec ses premiers maes, Jean La Madelaine et le musicien Allan McCarthy, connu pour ses musiques de danse contemporaine, ses succ賠avec le groupe Men Without Hats et pour son disque culte avec la chanteuse et r顬isatrice Yvel Champagne. La mort pr魡tur饠 d'Allan en 1995 allait placer Dixie au coeur de la vie de Doug avec lequel elle allait passer le reste de ses jours. 

Dixie 鴡it connue par les habitu鳠de la rue Saint-Laurent et par les membres du milieu culturel qu颩cois. Charmante, f魩nine, discr败 et noble, simple mais combinant la fid鬩t頠 la fermet頤'esprit, 堬oup en ville㥠cr顩t partout des relations. Chaque jour, au gr頤e ses promenades, des inconnus l'accostaient, charm鳠par sa gr⣥ et sa beaut鮠Install饠dans la vitrine de chez Else's durant les beaux jours d'鴩, elle en 鴡it devenue un symbole. Au d颵t des ann饳 90, Dixie s'est d'ailleurs illustr饠comme mascotte officielle lors des toutes premi貥s manifestations de Divers/Cit頣omme vedette du char all駯rique de la librairie L'androgyne.

Dixie, dont la grand-m貥 鴡it louve, repr鳥ntait pour nous le lien entre les beaut鳠du monde sensible et celles, spirituelles, de la nature et de la for괮

Dixie s'est av鲩 une complice exceptionnelle de plusieurs gestes d'art, notamment dans la s鲩e de vid鯳 exp鲩mentaux 쩥n Dog䥠Bashar Shbib, colportant les images de prouesses adorables de Los Angeles ࠔokyo. Dixie participa 駡lement ࠤiff鲥ntes cr顴ions radiophoniques de Diffusion Syst譥 Minuit sur les ondes de CKUT et ࠬa s鲩e de CD �tr顬, Capitale Mondiale de la Slush 㵲 鴩quette Slush Kapital comme bruiteuse/mangeuse. Les cds peuvent 괲e entendus au http://www.agencetopo.qc.ca/postaudio/etalages.html

Dixie a nourrit 駡lement l'esprit Fluxus en interpr鴡nt la partition de piano dans 㯮ate pour le loup 䥠Benjamin Muon et de Jean Dupuy, une performance pr鳥nt饠ࠬa galerie Clark en 2003. Elle y joue un morceau de musique r鳵ltant des anagrammes d'un r飩t fantastique sur le Fashion Plaza de Montr顬 et les loups de la Nouvelle-France. La parution d'un livre 餩t頰ar le commissaire Claude Gosselin et contenant les photos de Dixie interpr鴡nt cette sonate est pr鶵e pour 2006 aux 餩tions du Centre International d'Art Contemporain (CIAC).

Le 19 mai 2005, l'artiste canadien Paul Couillard a cr驠la performance ⥡utiful Dog ८ m魯ire de Dixie, dans le cadre du festival international de performance de Cracavie en Pologne.

Tous ses amis et ses proches y sont convi鳮 La date pr飩se de cette rencontre n'est pas encore d鴥rmin饬 mais vous pourrez suivre la pr鰡ration de cette f괥 en visitant cette page Web de Dixie : www.systememinuit.com/dixie.

 

This site is dedicated to Dixie, our 10 year old little wolf whose light left us at 2 am May 17, 2005.

Born in Joliette, descended from the legendary lineage created byﵴou轢 St-Alexis-de-Montcalm noted for the reintroduction of the grey wolf into the bloodlines of huskies after having been saved by a wolf in the Arctic.

Dixie spent her infancy with Jean la Madelaine and the musician Allan McCarthy; Allan was known for his international success in pop music with Men Without Hats and underground cult signer Yvel Champagne. The premature death of Allan in 1995 wound up placing Dixie into the loving arms of Doug with whom she spent the rest of her days.

Dixie was well known to those who spent time in and around St-Laurent Blvd. as well as to members of Qu颥cࣵltural community.

Charming and discrete, feminine and savage, 襠city wolf㲥ated friends everywhere. Each day during her strolls, strangers were charmed by her grace and beauty. Spending warm summer days installed in the window of Else೨e became their mascot. In the early 1990෡s also the official mascot of the Logyne Bookstore during the Divers/Cit預ride Day parades.

Dixie the Grand Dame as Wolf showed us the link between the inherent beauty of the sensorial world and that of the spiritual, of nature and the forest. 

Dixie participated in numerous cultural projects, notably in the experimental videos produced by Bashar Shbib with his Aliendog.net website. Enabling people from Los Angeles to Tokyo to enjoy Dixieࡤorable prowess.

Additionally Dixie collaborated in radiophonic creations produced by Diffusion syst譥 Minuit which were  broadcast on CKUT as well as on the CDs ﮴r顬 Capitale Mondiale de la Slush᳠bruiteuse/mangeuse. (the loud one/ the eater)

Dixie also fed the spirit of Fluxus in her interpretation of the piano part in ﮡta for the Wolf⹠Benjamin Muon and Jean Dupuy, a performance presented at the Clark Galley last year. She played a musical piece resulting from the anagrams of a poetic recitation about the Fashion Plaza and the Wolves of New France. The publication of a book edited by Curator Claude Gosselin containing the photos of Dixie performing this sonata is planned for 2006 by les Éditions du Centre International dⴍ Contemporain (CIAC).

May 19 2005, the canadian artist Paul Couillard  presented a performance entitled "Beautiful Dog" in memory of Dixie at the Krakow International Performance Festival.

A compilation of the collected photographs and videos of Dixie will be presented during a special ceremony in June 2005. All of her family and friends will be told of the exact date and location of this gathering once it has been determined.
