From May 15 to August 21, 2022
Originally from Valcourt, animal artist Andrée Marcoux is currently showing Bestiaire, her third solo exhibition at the Yvonne L. Bombardier Cultural Centre. This new corpus marks a turning point in Marcoux’ artistic journey. In this exhibition, her images are principally rendered in black and white. Working with India ink and charcoal – materials born of the soil – she homes in on the very essence of a wild animal, isolating it from its natural habitat. The exhibition is a meditation on the justification for capturing wild animals or the impact of human civilization on biodiversity – a reflection of the artist’s profound love of the animal world. These realistic-looking animals (some almost life-size) invite the viewer to observe them at close quarters in exquisite detail – all the better to love them, just as it should be!
