  • Anglo Canadian Pulp & Paper Mills Ltd. is a project about paper mills, the factories that were the basis of Quebec's urban development over the course of the last century. Whether it is East Angus, Windsor, Alma, Shawinigan and many many others, an impressive amount of Quebec cities exist solely because of this industry. In most of these cities, the paper mill was the main employer, and its influence, as much economic as social, political or environmental was key in the development of those regions. Now that these mills are closing one after the other due to the growth of digital media and globalization leading to the outsourcing of jobs, what will be left here? What will remains in all these workers' memories? What impact will they have in Quebec collective memories? The artistic statement of this project is all about man-altered landscapes, and the influence of environment on people. Coming back full circle : men altering territories altering men.
