Montreal artist Isabelle Lapierre is now on display for L’art s’affiche on the facades of the Ubisoft studio in the Mile-End
Art Souterrain is proud to present the seventh edition of L’art s’affiche, in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal.
Over a period of three months, Ubisoft will host a solo exhibition of the works of artist Isabelle Lapierre in the Mile-End, on the exterior facade of her studio at the corner of Saint-Viateur et Saint-Dominique streets with the objective of democratizing art in the public space.
Isabelle Lapierre holds a master’s degree in visual arts from Laval University. She has had solo and group exhibitions in several regions of Quebec, notably at the Galerie des Arts Visuels (Quebec City), at the Art Mûr gallery (Montreal) and at L’Écart (Rouyn-Noranda). She shows her videos at various events and festivals, including Traverse Vidéo (France) and the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois (Montreal). In 2008, she joined the collective Les Fermières Obsédées with whom she gave performances in Canada and Serbia. She is co-founder of the collective B.L.U.S.H., which since 2015 has been dedicated to the creation of performative works combining sound art and visual arts.
Isabelle Lapierre’s approach involves a plurality of mediums including painting, sculpture, installation, video and performance. This diversity helps her to create bridges between elements of different natures, and to question the sharpness of the boundaries delimiting the components of reality. She is interested in ecology in its broadest sense, which colors her perception of the world and influences her entire creative process. Isabelle sees art as a form of magic that allows her to have a certain effect on reality, the power of which comes from the interaction between her personal power and the agentivity of the things that make up her work.
