CURRENT EXHIBITION
ADÈLE BLAIS
FRAGMENTS DE FOLIES

La Princesse RebelleMay 27 to August 12, 2018

The artist and collagist Adèle Blais draws inspiration from her childhood and the people around her, to create dazzling, inspiring work with a hint of romance. She loves to deconstruct and reinterpret the human condition. The artist’s unique style marries photography, painting and textured collages with a sprinkling of well-chosen words.

Her eye-catching artwork showcases female figures clad in vibrant, theatrical costumes. Her current show depicts women who have left their mark on the world – from Claudette Colvin to Simone de Beauvoir. Ceramics, a dreamy dress and a collection of magnificent masks, round out this exciting summer exhibition.

MARYLÈNE MÉNARD AND ROBERT BIRON
FRAGMENTS DE FOLIES

En mode durableMay 27 to August 12, 2018

Metal worker Robert Biron and his life partner Marylène Ménard, a stained glass artist and mosaicist, make fascinating, playful works of art covered in mosaics and giving everyday objects a second life.

By combining their skills and employing traditional techniques, these artisans create multicoloured, contemporary ‘menageries’, which are both original and surprising. The universe they create, populated by large wading birds, horned antelope and mouflon heads and colourful pictures adorned with popular floral designs, brings joy to young and old. A visit to this exhibition, featuring these eye-catching works of art, will stop you in your tracks.

MAJ FORTIER

DestinyMay 27 to August 12, 2018

Painter and sculpture MAJ Fortier views today’s society through a whimsical and yet profound lens. He draws his inspiration from the irony of the human condition – a precarious balance between reality and ridicule – creating works that have a lasting effect on the viewer.

In this exhibition, the artist is showing a series of digital prints, themed around clothing, exploring the symbolism behind what an individual might choose to wear when going out and about.  

Pression en tubes, a new series of bronze sculptures, is also part of this exhibition. Shaped like giant squeezed toothpaste tubes, the sculptures depict the many pressures an individual has to deal with, in today’s consumer society. Fortier’s art certainly gives viewers food for thought!
