Portfolio Website: Stéphane Gilot
Take a look at these art pieces that I discovered when perusing the portfolio website of Stéphane Gilot. I enjoyed seeing all of the drawings which act as concept plans for the installations he builds. Some of these installations are quite playful - like the piece below with the red stairs called "Libre arbitre" or "Free Will". This installation makes a nice visual impact with the structure a bright red colour.
"A native of Belgium, Stéphane Gilot has lived and worked in Montreal since 1996. He holds an MA in visual and media arts from the University of Québec in Montreal. Gilot’s hybrid constructions and imaginary locales invite us to take part in an array of situations. Dubbed “plans d’évasions”, these constructions are a set of autonomous units that contribute to the construction of the “performative city,” an on-going and evolving project. The presentation of these structures—drawings, watercolors, models, shelters, video components—betray a marked interest in the social organization of cities, in our behavioural habits, and in a reconsidered anthropology of habitat."
