Rémi Bergeron was born in Chicoutimi. He studies art at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi and goes on to work for many years as props and stage designer. During this time, he gradually develops a sculptural process though which he questions objects predetermined role.
His fields of exploration include the correlation between objects and the suggestion of movement. The simplicity of his works’ compositions and the realistic movements of his characters’ gestural languages are quite surprising. Through a minimalist use of the selected objects, a body’s structure is born: real life characters and figures emerge, revealing lines that are simply yet masterfully assembled.
In the artist’s view, objects are the active witnesses of our passage on earth, surviving us and steeped in our history. This is why he usually favors pieces from another era, relics from the past tainted with distinctive flavors. He rarely tinkers with the objects themselves; the artist’s brilliant assemblage coupled with the undeniable marks of time over matter give the works a unique character and an organic atmosphere that transcends time.
