Recent Drawings, Reliefs and Sculptures

FOLIO 01 2013


In the early 1980s, collaborating with électroacoustic composer Michel Tétreault, I focussed on developing very minimal, conceptual sound environments with the idea of sculpting sound exhibited in venues such as The Wired Society, Toronto (1984) and the Plan K, Brussels (1986). Then my sculpture dealt with the domestic, maximizing physical attributes in form of utilitarian objects (Sculptures et autres inventions, Louise Déry, Curator, Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec 1996). I have been exploring since then, in terms of volume and shape, different avenues proposed by the medium of sculpture. In the last decade, my photographic work has underlined social behavior sourced from Architecture, Advertising and Fashion (Carte Blanche Magenta Foundation 2006). Parallel to my practice as sculptor, I organized exhibitions as curator and designer, and my collaborative projects have included the opening of the first centre dedicated to architecture in Montréal (1997): 200m3 architecture & satellites, exhibiting International/National projects from Architects such as Rem Koolhaas & Kate Orff and Arakawa & Gins. My work has been generously supported over the years, by The Canada Council for the Arts, Le Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation and The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation.

Michel Archambault’s recent work is based on the interaction between mediums, references and materials. The constantly renewed and never completed questionings are carried by the sensible dimension of the objects. As the artist underlines “it is about creating triggers, generating sensibilities, and escaping the rational.”   Text : Aseman H. Sabet Traduction : Bernard Schutze Excerpt from Press Communiqué Solo Exhibition Sculptures et Images held at Clark Center in Montréal, October 2010.
