TU NE FUIRAS POINT
Pierre Desrosiers was born in Laval in 1957. He studied in Toronto and New York City, then obtained a Master's degree in Fine Arts at UQAM. A recipient of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ministère de la Culture du Québec, he produced several public works and presented three solo exhibitions, including "Les œuvres vraies d'un artiste fictif, Pierre-Louis Desringuerre 1880-1937".
Tu ne fuiras pas is the title of a series of theatrical installations directed by Pierre Desrosiers and presented in Moncton, Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa and Saint-Hyacinthe. In an atmosphere largely tinged with humour, on the borderline between dream and delirium, the artist explores subjects such as sexual desire, self-love and the search for power. At gallery B-312 Emergence, Pierre Desrosiers literally invades the space with a staging in which he offers us an unusual encounter between the world of childhood and the contemporary sexual landscape.
