Biography

An imprint of poetry and playfulness, Chloé Lefebvre's multidisciplinary artistic approach gives a general account of reflections on everyday life. Recently she realized works of integrated with architecture. Her first realization is visible on the outside wall of the Paul Jarry school in Lachine. In the spring of 2017, we can see her most recent work on a school in Châteauguay. She holds a Master's Degree in Visual and Media Arts from UQAM. She is a member of Atelier Graff and Galerie Clark.

 

Artistic project : Ballon LV 

If a purse is meant to contain money, a Louis Vuitton handbag doubles that wealth. With this balloon hanging at its gallows, one can finally afford the head of Louis Vuitton. This provocative sculpture seduces and challenges the viewer to play with either to realize the fantasy of appropriating an object of luxury, or to vent with fists against this emblem of social cleavage. An ironic and critical work, in both cases, it mixes desire and frustration and acts as a bait, but the prohibition of touching it by sabotaging satiety. Manufactured ten years ago, this LV monument still incarnates this desire to do justice, to make affordable what is unaffordable, and reach the unattainable: LV for Light Vengeance, without guilt since it remains a game, an entertainment.
