Le mirage - Ici et Maintenant - Bref et scintillant
Autodidact artists, Pierre and Marie work in Québec since 2008. Their work has been exhibited in various artist centers, cultural centers and private galleries in Quebec. They took part in the Foire en art actuel de Quebec and Manif 6. Their works are part of private and public collections (CALQ, PADORAC). They also members of the Acapulco collective.
Pierre and Marie’s practice is full of meaningful objects attached to the popular culture. Their work aims towards the link between objects and humans and the quest for an ideal, an abusive use or a search for meaning. “Art becomes a burning element that consumes itself and a way to disguise the truth.” These pieces, apparently harmless, because covered up by cake frosting and disguise in toys, subtly bring a conscience of the good and the bad”. This work evokes the children’s naivety that goes away with the roughness of life.
