Mise en Pli is the result of a residency initiated clandestinely with the maintenance staff of the Hotel Chicoutimi in Winter 2017: Corps et Manies, domestiquer la tache.

The video document is then broadcast simultaneously on the hotel’s television sets, a vernissage is organized and a booklet is produced for the occasion.
