Shannon Anderson takes a fresh and intensive look at the work of installation artist Dominique Pétrin
Montreal printmaker/installation artist Dominique Pétrin —
whose practice is prominently featured in a 9-page section in CAROUSEL 36 —
creates monumental, immersive art works that are unique, ephemeral and specifically conceived for their environment. With every new work she produces, the walls and floors of a gallery are wallpapered with hand silkscreened works on paper — featuring bold lines, jarring colours and repetitive, pixel-referenced motifs — resulting in a playful, temporary zone that recreates the digital experience in the physical realm.
A former member of the petrochemical rock band Les Georges Leningrad
, Pétrin has collaborated with such renowned artists as Sophie Calle, Pil & Galia Kollectiv (London) and recently choregraphers Antonija Livingstone (Berlin), Stephen Thompson (Paris) and Jennifer Lacey (Paris). In 2014, she was longlisted for the Sobey Award. Her work has been exhibited across Canada, in France, United States, Belgium and United Kingdom. Her next exhibitions will occur at South of the Tracks Gallery (Chicago), Time Equities (New York) and Grunt Gallery (Vancouver). She is represented in Canada by antoine ertaskiran gallery.
