Biographie de l'artiste

Atelier Circulaire is an arts centre devoted to creation, research, distribution and education in printmaking.  Its goal is to preserve and teach traditional engraving techniques while integrating new technologies and contemporary visual arts practices.

Démarche artistique

In this installation, the traffic cone embodies a form of social control put into place to ensure the public safety.  This symbol also evokes our reckless participation in more insidious forms of control. A hallway made of 400 traffic cones, their points facing inward, creates an oppressive feeling while also offering the possibility to spy on passersby undetected.   Made of printed paper, the cones are emblazoned with motifs that recall multiple eyes, mouths, and ears capable of capturing and amplifying the slightest incriminating clue. Real traffic cones that had been cut and laid flat, then engraved, served as the pattern for these paper cones.
