Since the early 1980s, Jacques Bilodeau has, in his “recycling” of buildings, made major architectural statements that challenge the presuppositions of house and home. Concurrent to these in situ achievements, which blend art, design and architecture, he has also created installations and sculptures for exhibition in galleries and public venues. These active artworks are offered up as tools that mobilize the body – and disorient it. Clearly performative, the works reveal their meaning through gradual manipulation by the spectator. The experiential nature of Bilodeau’s work is evident in all he undertakes.
Jacques Bilodeau is represented by Joyce Yahouda Gallery in Montreal.
