Mongolia is the home of the Kazakh golden eagle hunters. The Kazakh eagle hunters preserve the centuries-old tradition of riding with golden eagles to hunt for foxes, marmots and even wolves.

The Mongolian eagle hunters are a dying breed. In one estimate there are only fifty or sixty to two hundred and fifty eagle hunters left The golden eagle hunters capture the eaglets at around four months old, which is old enough to know how to hunt but young enough to be pliable to human company and training.

Almost always female eaglets are chosen because they are more aggressive and  larger than males when adult. The eagles are domesticated, fed by hand, and will live with the hunters’ families for years. The Golden Eagle festival is an annual traditional festival held in BAYAN-OLGII AIMAG (province), Mongolia. The festival  incorporates  an opening ceremony, parade, cultural exhibitions and competitions.

Dressed in full eagle hunting regalia and mounted on groomed decorated horses, the entrants compete for the awards of Best Turned Out Eagle and Owner; Best Eagle at Hunting Prey and Best Eagle at Locating Its Owner from a Distance. The hunting demonstrations consist of eagles hunting for a fox skin being dragged on a rope behind a horse. Other sporting activities include horse racing, archery and the highly entertaining Bushkashi – goatskin tug of war on horseback.Local people come to the festival selling traditional Mongolian handicrafts like fox and marmet skin hats and coats.

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.
