François Gaudet:

Stories from the Forest Primeval

July 4 - December 4, 2019



Acadian-Métis artist François Gaudet’s solo exhibition explores his mythic Acadian living room. Through explorations of the mythmaking of Evangeline, the landscape of Grand-Pré and the horses of Sable Island he explores themes of exile, of memory and heritage. The exhibition presents sculptural, photographic and installation based work. Gaudet often approaches his photography not as a finished product, but as a medium of possibility for further experimentation. The artist will have an on-site base camp where he will continue to expand, reflect and create work in which he seeks to articulate a homeland for himself. 


Curator: Dr. Laurie Dalton
