The Maison de la Culture Claude-Léveillée presents the exhibition "Décadences" by Alexis Lavoie until May 30, 2021. This exhibition brings together old works as well as the most recent production of the artist.
Alexis Lavoie was born in 1980 in Montreal where he lives and works. He holds a bachelor's degree in visual and media arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal (2008) and won first prize in the 12th RBC Canadian Painting Competition in 2010.
We are proud to have been presenting his work at the gallery for several years.
"With a variety of means, Alexis Lavoie strives to represent what is crumbling, what is falling apart. His works explore the failing icons of an uncertain present. Playing with contrasts, they open spaces where our most intimate anxieties are replayed. Balloons, animals, hats and party cakes rub shoulders with skulls, fish carcasses, cemeteries and explosions."
- Philippe Dumaine, art historian
