The City of Dorval presents the art exhibition The Gardens by Annie Baillargeon, from June 1 to July 13, 2018, at the Peter B. Yeomans Cultural Centre (1401 Lakeshore Drive).
This free exhibition of digital photomontages overlaid with paint is full of stolen moments in the middle of forests, dead woods, and withered fields in which Annie inserts a touch of life and grandeur. Annie Baillargeon lives and works in Quebec City. Her multidisciplinary approach integrates painting, performance, and photography to propose an exhilarating and transgressive representation of the body. She co-founded Les Fermières Obsédées. She now pursues her practice as a founding member of the collective B.L.U.S.H. Many art centres in Quebec and in Canada have presented her solo work. She was also part of numerous collective exhibitions, most notably at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec, The Invisible Dog Art Centre in Brooklyn, the Contact Image Festival in Toronto, and Touched at the Liverpool Biennial. She has also presented her work in France, Serbia, Poland, Ecuador, Ireland, Australia, Wales, and Chicago.
There are more than 20 publications dedicated to her work. She has also received many prizes. She is represented by D’Este Gallery in Montreal and by Galerie 3 in Quebec City. Her work is featured in several collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, and the Art Bank of the Canada Council for the Arts.
