The project: “Arte facto” was started during her stay in Coaticook as artist in residency in 2015. It marked a turning point in the evolution of Maude Langlois' approach: the integration of artifacts into her practice. Since her initial artistic training, she now incorporates natural elements into her paintings. This “modus operandi” has recently been extended to artifacts, characterized by human transformation.
A graduate from the University of Montreal, Maude Langlois draws from her dual training in visual arts and psychology to create works that reflect the human condition through a distorted and fragmented reality. Incorporating multiple references, the artist's early works have appeared in several exhibitions and symposia throughout Quebec.
In recent years, she has worked with the aesthetics of various natural materials and fragments. The exhibit presented at the Beaulne Museum integrates cultural objects or artefacts, which, for their part, tell the story of the modern man.
The creations of Maude Langlois, inspired by the imagery of collective memory, unlocks to the rugged territories that inhabit us: a call for reflection and introspection both politically and personally.
Opening reception will be held on Sunday the 12th of November at 2 p.m.
