Unveiling of the artist behind the trophies of the 41st edition of Le FIFA
The International Festival of Films on Art is committed to promoting Quebec’s artistic creation and wishes to highlight the talent of local artists. For the design of the 40th edition trophies, the choice fell on Jérémie St-Onge, glass blower. By collaborating with the artist, Le FIFA wishes to pay tribute to the richness of Quebec’s crafts.
Verre d’Onge pieces are hand blown in Montreal/Tiohtià:ke by Jérémie St-Onge. His practice, whilst respecting the traditions learned from masters, allows for a more instinctive creative approach. When the craftsman is also an artist, there is space for spontaneity and nuances. Every piece has an unforeseen aspect that distinguishes singular from ordinary. This is not a production, but rather a large collection. The design is in the arrangement, the ensemble defines it.
