« Plaisirs non coupables en terres troubles »
MARTIN BUREAU is a multidisciplinary artist with an eloquent career that meshes art and geopolitics. Through painting, video installation art and documentary filmmaking, he is exploring major global issues and inscribing them into esthetical and conceptual issues. His latest interdisciplinary project “Walls of Disorder” took him to Palestine, Northern Ireland, and the USA-Mexico border.
His works have found a place in several private and public collections, including the Musée d’art contemporain de Baie St-Paul, Musée du Bas-St-Laurent, cities of Montreal and Quebec, the Assemblée nationale du Québec, Loto-Québec, and SSQ Assurance. His projects have been shown in various visual arts and cinema venues and events such as the Manif d’art de Québec, Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Quinta Normal Contemporary Art Museum in Santiago (Chile), Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne in Paris, Raindance Festival in London, Filmets in Badalona (Spain), Festival de cinéma de la Ville de Québec, Festival Regard in Saguenay, and Chicago International Film Festival.
At FIMAV, MARTIN BUREAU is exhibiting a selection of pictorial works that explore the Anthropocene and modern geopolitical conflicts with in-your-face poetic lucidity!
