Biographie

Steve Giasson is a conceptual artist from Quebec who uses a variety of mediums (conceptual writing, video, performance, photography) to transgress genres and assess their limits. The romantic notions of authenticity and originality are undermined in a process that spares neither the everyday life, nor references to art history in a effort to demystify the creative process and the artist.

Démarche artistique  

VOX contains all of the sentences distinctly heard and written by the artist between the 25th of july 2009 and the 24th of july 2010 outside of his apartment. The artwork may be interperated as the product of a drastic and performative surveillance by the artist of the environment he lives in and the voices that fill it. Graphically reproducing his collection into a sound wave, this text can be read as a portrait of its contemporaries while also being a self-portrait.
