Geneviève et Matthieu

Mr. Gros

Geneviève and Matthieu's installation-performance, M. Gros (Mr. Big), is inspired by the Canadian investigative technique called Mr. Big, which allows a police officer, undercover, to obtain a confession from a suspect of a serious unsolved crime.

Led by shape-shifting characters, living sculptures, dual weapons and a televisual sound environment, M. Gros addresses issues of identity such as surveillance, infiltration, idea theft and copying; but beyond the classic investigative games, the story features a contemporary artistic flora.


Wednesday, June 14, 2023 at 7 pm. The opening of this exhibition kicks off la FAAS7!

The exhibition will run until August 20, 2023, at which time a “finissage” (closing) event is planned as part of the Up Here Festival.

Geneviève et Matthieu

Geneviève and Matthieu create a strident universe in which a musical happening and a performative installation collide casually. Inspired by art and life, the duo evolves in an artistic cul-de-sac by constantly trying to push the limits of the medium. Geneviève and Matthieu work in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Bachelors in visual arts, they have been presenting interdisciplinary installations and performances since the 2000s. Coordinators of L’Écart, a centre for contemporary artists and directors of the Rouyn-Noranda Performative Art Biennial, they are involved in their community.
