Effet de mode et autres pirateries du genre

Hello,

I’m bgl. There are three of me. I am pleased to invite you to our solo exhibition "Effet de mode et autres pirateries du genre". Inspired by trends in contemporary art, this recent work presents four large-scale laminated photos under plexiglass. With this radical departure from installations, I hope to finally satisfy the collectors, gallery owners and other art lovers who’ve been nervously foraging in the coarse tracts of contemporary art, for I fear the end of the grant is fast approaching. And you . . .

I was born, by accident, in 1996, of an uncertain friendship between J. Bilodeau, S. Giguère, and N. Laverdière, during their heady studies in the lucrative field of visual art. Surprisingly, obtaining a single diploma out of three opened doors for me: galleries, artist centres, museums, local events throughout the province. This is where I learnt the trade, and where I met the inspiring family of Quebec art, which I quietly promote abroad. I do the best I can in the inscrutable art jungle. I’m having a blast, and hope it goes on for a while, because, for all three of me, the rummaging is swell.

Happy spring,

bgl
