ARTIST BIO / Dominique Pétrin is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Montreal, Canada. In visual arts as well as performance, her interests converge towards producing altered states of consciousness and perception, be it through cognitive or visual illusions, or, for her performances, the use of hypnosis. Since 2014, her work has taken on monumental proportions, including the wrapping of a subway station and several other buildings in Montreal. A former member of the band Les Georges Leningrad, she has also collaborated with such renowned artists as Sophie Calle, Pil & Galia Kollectiv and choreographer Antonija Livingstone. In 2014, she was nominated for the Sobey Art Award longlist. Her work has been exhibited across Canada, in France, USA and the United Kingdom.
ARTIST TALK & DEMO / Contemporary Calgary is pleased to host a free artist talk and demo with Dominique Pétrin on Sunday, May 31st at 2PM, where the artist will discuss her practice, and demonstrate her installation process on the gallery walls using silkscreened prints and potato starch adhesive.
