INSIDE Caroline Boileau and Stéphane Gilot: DRAWING CONCLUSIONS

Pièce pour une interprète, lumière rose et silence. Video still : Installation by Stéphane Gilot and performance by Caroline Boileau, Habana, Cuba, 2015.

Caroline Boileau is pursuing a reflection on the body and health through a practice combining performance, drawing, video and installation. She delves into the various ways in which one can inhabit, depict and talk about the body. Since 1995, she has participated in residencies in Canada and in Europe. Her work has been presented in exhibitions in Canada, USA, Belgium, Spain, Austria, Finland and Brazil. She holds an MFA from Concordia University. Her work in drawing is represented by Espace Robert Poulin in Montréal and her work in video by GIV (Groupe intervention vidéo). She is a member of the Regroupement des arts interdisciplinaires du Québec (RAIQ). She lives and works in Montreal, Canada.


A native of Belgium, Stéphane Gilot has lived and worked in Montreal, Canada, since 1996. He holds an MA in visual and media arts from the University of Québec in Montreal. Gilot’s hybrid constructions and imaginary locales invite us to take part in an array of situations. Dubbed “plans d’évasions”, these constructions are a set of autonomous units that contribute to the construction of the “performative city,” an on-going and evolving project. The presentation of these structures—drawings, watercolors, models, shelters, video components— betray a marked interest in the social organization of cities, in our behavioural habits, and in a reconsidered anthropology of habitat. His architectural installations and video performances have been shown extensively in Canada and abroad (Belgium, France, Germany, USA, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Serbia, Spain, Finland and Brazil).
