|33 IDEAS! PARTICIPANTS
I’m from St-Gabriel-de-Brandon, located in the province of Québec, Canada. I practiced theater before pursuing studies in visual arts. Starting out as a painter, I now dedicate my life in making poetic and textile art works. I have a bachelor’s degree in visual arts from l’Université Laval. Through many trips, my artistic work has been presented in Brazil, Sweden, in Colorado and in different provinces of Canada. I live and work in Québec City.
I work with different fabrics to invent and sew interactive clothing garments. I question myself about social identity and network concepts between forms and beings. My ‘‘overgarments’’ take shape mostly by being worn by participants who want to experiment with them. What’s more, all the suits I make are destined to be worn by more than one person at a time. The clothes connect between themselves or are simply sewed together. Furthermore, my work tends to take place in public spaces, so it can be integrated into an installation, a fashion show or a production scene.
My artistic experience at an international level made me think about the notion of nomadism. Between each trip, the idea of mobility slowly took place and my artistic work progressed. I am now sketching multifunctional portable architectures. A dwelling that can put on oneself, a ambulant and removable ‘‘home-clothing’’.
About the DIA Project
33 IDEAS!, an exhibit of art, writing and ideas
Denver International Airport
This exhibit showcases visual and literary artists associated with Colorado Art Ranch as presenters, artists in residence, or Nomads at one or more Artposia. The artists were selected because they use their passion, skills, knowledge, and talent to ask questions and react to the world around them. The work, in turn, inspires us to ask questions and view the world from different perspectives.
33 IDEAS! is on display at the Ansbacher Hall: The Art of Colorado, on the walkway between the terminal and A Gates before the security screening. The hall is accessible for everyone’s enjoyment.
