Second Empire (Borders-Frontières)

Second Empire (Borders-Frontières)
Beauséjour, Mathieu

Self-taught, Mathieu Beauséjour has been presenting his installations, interventions and images since the mid-90s. His works have been shown in Canada and in Europe in artist-run centres, public and private galleries, biennales and museums. They are part of the collection of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and the Archives nationales du Québec, and are in many private collections. Beauséjour’s work proceeds from a perspective of resistance, détournement or “semiotic terrorism.” Through these tactics he subverts the tools and concepts of power, alienation and oppression. His production casts both an ironic and nostalgic gaze on political and artistic avant-gardes and deploys cultural emblems such as money, hymns and manifestoes with the aim of examining our current condition. His work is contextual and site-specific, be it a gallery, an intervention site, a page or an action.

Mathieu Beauséjour is represented by the Centre Clark in Montreal and the Galerie Éponyme in Bordeaux.
