CURRENT EXHIBITION
X, Y EXHIBITION

From October 2 to December 30, 2022

This fall, the Exhibition Centre is presenting the works of Jérémie St-Pierre and Sébastien Pesot in a show entitled X, Y – two letters, two different generations that unite and yet divide these Eastern Townships artists whose work reflects their own particular eras.
In Sticky Study, Sébastien Pesot reinterprets punk culture, giving it a contemporary twist, through photographs, artefacts and live performances. In Qu’est-ce qui se trame? Jérémie St-Pierre leads us into a parallel universe through his large-format landscapes, bursting with colour and dizzying perspectives.
X, Y is an exhibition of multidisciplinary art reflecting the personal points of view of these innovative artists from two very different generations.

JÉRÉMIE ST-PIERRE
Qu’est-ce qui se trame?

From September 22 to December 30, 2022

Jérémie St-Pierre holds a master’s degree in visual and media arts from the University of Quebec in Montreal – UQAM (2018). His work has been featured in various exhibitions since 2006, notably at the Galerie de l’UQAM, at Usine C and at Caravansérail. He has created his recent paintings like a collagist, mixing images from diverse sources (media, personal collections, found images and so on) which he then reproduces on canvas. His compositions evoke a world bedeviled by anarchy, where the real and the imaginary clash with one another, causing us to reflect on the current state of the planet….

This exhibition is a retrospective of St-Pierre’s work between 2017 and 2022. The two bodies of work presented here are Chronique d’une virtualité anonyme (2018) and L’horizon des événements (2020). The former is themed around the rapid trajectory of virtual reality technologies, while the latter looks at the problems related to scientific disasters, climate change, the extinction of species and so on. The artist lives and works in Val-Jolie in the Eastern Townships.

SÉBASTIEN PESOT
Sticky Study

From October 2 to December 30, 2022

Sébastien Pesot, a multidisciplinary artist, musician and curator, has exhibited his work both in Quebec and around the world, at venues such as the Musée d’art contemporain (Baie-Saint-Paul), Musée des beaux-arts (Sherbrooke) and The Invisible Dog Art Center (New York City).

In 2000, Pesot graduated with a master’s degree in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and in 2014, he co-founded SPUNKT ART NOW, an artists’ collective whose aim was to take the punk movement in a new, contemporary direction. In 2016, their efforts came together in the form of an art project that will travel around the United States and Europe. A book entitled POST-PUNK ART NOW has already been published.

Pesot himself has had a strong influence on punk and his Sticky Study exhibition is an anthology of artworks and conceptual art, in which he reinterprets the aesthetic of this counterculture through photographs, videos, installations and performance art. By treating his subjects in a formal manner and placing objects in a context that is not the norm, the artist elevates them, giving them pride of place in his work.
