Du 4 mai au 1er juin dernier avait lieu l'exposition Le drapeau des fous à l'édifice Sherpa à Québec. Nous étions une centaines d'artistes à avoir chacun imaginé un drapeau pour représenter les fous en utilisant le médium de notre choix. Crédit photo : Ivan Binet
Ma proposition pour le drapeau des fous.
Art Installation @ Fresh Paint Gallery, Montreal
Upon entering the room, it feels like the fourth of July in America. The Stars and Stripes of the American flag are everywhere. This abundance of patriotic symbols seems a bit excessive to be innocent however... The eagle has two heads, the Catholic cross is merged with the $ sign and the eye above the pyramid seems to be watching us. The enigmatic maxims listed here and there and the various staged objects invite us to reconsider the history of the United States through its unknown facets. The American people are proud of their country's values, they like to display the emblems of the nation. But are the foundations of America so well-meaning that its people believe them?
