LOST IN TRANSLATION
Julie Doucet in interview with Sook-Yin Lee > APRIL 10
Iconic Montreal author and artist Julie Doucet joins us for the release of Carpet Sweeper Tales, a collection of dreamy, collaged photo comics. She will be interviewed by Sook-Yin Lee, host of CBC Radio's Definitely Not the Opera.
Though Doucet stopped drawing comics more than ten years ago, here she revisits the art form, pulling images from 1970s Italian fumetti or photonovels to create her own collage comics. Using vintage women's and home decorating magazines, Doucet collages a unique dialogue of love and travel between characters sitting in classic cars, driving through cities and pristine countryside. The result is a collection of lighthearted stories that play upon the disconnects between 1970s imagery and our modern world.
