Artist Statement

Finding Home is a visual narrative on being unsettled in an environment. The artist has moved many times during her lifetime but still desires to be home—to find a sense of place, a sense of belonging.

Levergneux’s new artists’ book Finding Home tackles the experience of living in Idaho while still deeply rooted in Canada. Different elevation, latitude, and longitude between her home divided by miles and miles of where she lives give rise to common elements: butterflies, snow, sunsets, and the Maple Leaf. Where Louise belongs means more than the place she inhabits. The question remains for Louise Levergneux—where do I belong?

Finding Home developed from a sense of place, a sense of belonging, or not! The text and houses represent the artist’s journey living in a different country far from her hometown in East-Central Canada. The small 3D printed houses and images represent the experience of finding where one belongs.

Ink jet prints on Lasal Matte paper, 235 gsm with an Epson Stylus Photo R3000. Explosion box with Turkish Map Folds, cloth over board binding with inkjet printed images.
