Artist Talk: University of Calgary
Friday, October 3, 2014 — 10:00am - 12:00pm
The work of Guillaume Adjutor Provost questions the presentation and representation inherent to autonomous objects. By association, he creates non-linear narratives where invested sources gather at the crossing of investigation and storytelling. Following an interdisciplinary approach, the projects of Guillaume Adjutor advocate a hybrid status between visual arts, design, literature and the curatorial. Therefore, he invests the artistic practice as a moving object seeing itself only by the fluidity with which it passes from one state to another.
Guillaume Adjutor Provost works and lives in Montreal. He is currently studying for a doctorate at the Université du Québec à Montréal. His area of research centres on the interchangeable role of artist-curators. Provost has received grants from Première Ovation and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, as well as a postgraduate scholarship from Hydro Québec. He has exhibited in both solo and group shows in Quebec, Ontario, the United States, Belgium, Germany, Austria and France.
