Suzanne Gauthier: One thing leads to another
Filmmaker Ariella Pahlke weaves the life and work of Suzanne Gauthier into a poetic narrative that mirrors the artist’s own process, capturing the flux in her work and how it’s interrelated with her environment. Intricately blending autobiography, landscape and culture, Gauthier navigates the marvellous and the ordinary, often infusing both with humour. Eclectic in the use of materials and references, Gauthier’s work is sensuous in texture and offers compositions that seem to have no end or beginning. This film is a glimpse into the curiosity, joy, and extraordinary perseverance that underscores the creative impulse of an artist.
