Simon Beaudry - Vehicle & Scalp

SIMON BEAUDRY'S EXHIBIT ''VÉHICULE ET SCALP'' IS BEING EXTENDED UNTIL DECEMBER 7 2013.

Montreal, October 31 2013– Galerie BAC is proud to present Simon Beaudry’s latest artistic project. This exhibition intitled « Véhicule et scalp » will be on from November 14 to November 30. The opening reception will be held Thursday November 14 starting at 5pm with the artist in attendance.

Simon Beaudry’s work explores Quebec’s identity. This exploration brought him to a reflection which led him to reinvent, transform or criticize elements that constitute Quebec identity notion, inherent to each of us. From this process, the artist created works reflecting a certain vision of Quebec, which he tries to propel using modernized traditional elements.

Composed of photography, sculptures/installations and multimedia, « Véhicule et scalp » is an artistic project featuring two pulsions (collective pulsion & individual pulsion) that drive the artist. The first part entitled « Véhicule » relates to national emancipation and territory occupation. The second part entitled « scalp » relates to derision and valorization of what is missing as social status.
