About the artwork
Beauté florale (tordue) (2021)
Beauté florale (tordue) is a series of realistic sculptures executed in silicone moulding. The work questions sexual identity, the marginal and the imperfect.
Through sculpture, Thériault questions the impact of new technologies on our psyche. The artist creates human casts capturing the entire body or fragments of it. Playing on gender ambiguity, the artist then adds colours and accessories, giving a sense of identity to these characters. These humanoids, inert or animated by robotic mechanisms, raise various issues in a world where technologies are omnipresent.
