Guillaume Adjutor Provost

Guillaume Adjutor Provost’s research examines the sometimes fragile border between the trades of artist and exhibition curator. He considers his installations not as ends in themselves but as spaces that allow for action and reflection beyond the works in the exhibition site. In this sense, he places a body of interrelated works in an area that is open to collaboration. Working mainly in drawing, installation, and performance, he explores the broad ramifications of knowledge. 

The artist receives the generous support of Christine & G. Pierre Lapointe (2018).
