Artist biography

Born in Saint-Hyacinthe, Guillaume La Brie lives and works in Montreal. He received a bachelor’s degree in visual arts from UQÀM in 2001 followed by a master’s degree in 2007. His work can be seen in public settings thanks to Quebec’s Art and Architecture Integration Policy and the events organised by the

Project approach

Shaped as a commemorative monument, La Brie’s work defines a sculptural mass. However, the base of the scuplture has been hollowed out to outline the silhouettes of its metaphorical spectators. The viewers who stand under the work become its base.

 

They are inserting their own bodies into the corresponding silhouette to become an ephemeral sculpture. Shifting from viewer to sculpture and back to viewer again, they act both as the spectator and the spectacle.  When the piece is exhibited without any action, the empty silhouettes call back to the idea of gazing at what is both there and missing.
