L'empire de la création 3

Geneviève et Matthieu (Rouyn-Noranda)


AXENÉO7 presents Serge Olivier Fokoua (Gatineau) and artists duo, Geneviève et Matthieu (Rouyn-Noranda), in collaboration with Galerie UQO and DAÏMÔN, as part of Rencontres interuniversitaires des maîtrises en arts visuels (RIMAV).

L’empire de la création is a polyphonic writing project that portrays the voice of ambitious marginal artists whose destiny has not yet been played. Performative intrigues, manipulations of art, transformations of states. It is through a choral and visual work, an installation and an epic soundtrack that an unorganized territory unfolds into a living picture, almost alive.

Since the early 2000s, Geneviève et Matthieu have created pictorial, sculptural, installation, musical and manipulable works. These works propose a performative conception of the art pieces as an extension of our body: paradisiacal visions, power relations between man and nature, rites of passage, duplication, fetishism. The experience of the body that bounces, transforms and blends into painting. A work in constant evolution.
