DAVEY, Moyra
I Confess

This NEW <3 book by Moyra Davey is based on her eponymous 2019 film, I Confess, that unites three main sources in a chronicle of late 20th-century Quebec, shaped by themes of race, poverty, language and nationalism. Using American writer James Baldwin’s 1962 novel Another Country as its point of departure, Davey’s film also focuses on the life and work of Québécois revolutionary Pierre Vallières and Ottawa-based political philosopher Dalie Giroux.

Published to accompany the exhibition Moyra Davey: The Faithful at the National Gallery of Canada, this deeply personal and highly political book seeks to examine an unresolved chapter of Québécois history from a uniquely interdisciplinary perspective that draws attention to contemporary issues of separatism, while reflecting the artist’s understanding of photography and text as unique corollaries. This publication features writings by the artist, Dalie Giroux and National Gallery of Canada’s Associate Curator Andrea Kunard, and a poster insert. [publisher's note]

Ce nouveau livre de Moyra Davey est aussi en français \°0°/ et prolonge son film I Confess, qui revenait sur l’histoire récente du Québec, en prenant comme point de départ le livre de James Baldwin Un autre pays pour s‘intéresser à deux figures d’écrivain-e-s canadien-ne-s engagé-e-s, Pierre Vallières, militant de l’indépendance du Québec et auteur des Nègres blancs d'Amérique, et l’essayiste Dalie Giroux. 

Avec des textes de Dalie Giroux, Andrea Kunard, Moyra Davey.
