Alexandre David’s sculptures and installations evoke the daily use of architecture. He creates volumes within which we can move, or upon which we can sit. His works are often built in such as a way as to create the impression that we are walking along a wall, turning a corner or strolling around a square. However, he does not attempt to represent daily experiences that relate to space, nor to make architecture the theme of his work. Instead, he wants to create an experience where the awareness of architecture is essential.
Alexandre David lives and works in Montreal. His work has been shown in various museums and galleries in Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Austria and France. He has exhibited his work in solo exhibitions at Optica and Dare-Dare in Montreal and La Chambre Blanche in Quebec City in 2007 and, in 2009, at Ace Art inc in Winnipeg and Grunt in Vancouver. In 2011, his work was shown in solo exhibitons at YYZ in Toronto, Espace Tilt in Lausanne, as well as Plein Sud in Montreal. He had a solo exhibition at the Parisian Laundry in Montreal in 2011 .
