November 20 - January 15, 2010

Carrier-Chouinard is more interested in the "singularization of foundational myths" than in things/objects themselves. He employs drawing, sculpture, installation and video to dissect histories, symbols and icons to address issues of dogma and cultural relevance. The results are a contribution to the mysticism and intrigue surrounding these archetypes.

For a 2008 exhibition at Centre Clark in Montréal, the artist borrowed numerous mannequins from the Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré basilica, to create a large-scale pseudo-historical diorama complete with equal parts epic tragedy and ridiculous pomposity. The artist the depicted blindfolded explorers/conquerors and lumberjacks floating down constructed rivers of the Nouvelle-France.
