Sylvain Bouthillette, [untitled], 2006.
Sylvain Bouthillette lives and works in Montreal. As a multidisciplinary artist, his practice includes music, dance, installation art, painting and photography. Whatever medium he uses, his work aims to demonstrate that absurdity, impermanence, confusion, instability, ambiguity, uncertainty and embarrassment are all means of liberation when you stop believing that life is something stable and definable. As much mystical pursuit as esthetical exploration, his approach attempts to reconcile spiritual values and the intellectualism of a critical discourse. He recently had shows at Galerie Trois-Points (Montreal), Centre EXPRESSION (Saint-Hyacinthe) and Clint Roenish Gallery (Toronto). Upcoming shows include the Musée regional de Rimouski and the Musée d’art urbain de Montréal. His works are part of several public collections.
Sylvain Bouthillette is represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery in Toronto and Galerie Trois-Points in Montreal.
