Mathieu Lacroix's multidisciplinary practice comprises drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. The notion of the "sketch" is central to his work, employing it as both a conceptual approach and a literal technique across a spectrum of media, helping to subtly unify his wide-ranging intellectual and formal interests. His drawings showcase architectural spaces and a variety of cyphers and symbols in a suggestive and quietly beautiful manner. He creates unusual environments borrowing from both the domestic space and the commercial. Lacroix's interventions question the complex relationship between the individual and his environment, habits, and identity. His work touches lightly but profoundly on issues from many areas such as politics, economics, personal and collective identities, and perceptual experience.
Mathieu Lacroix (born in Port-au-Prince, Haïti in 1981) is a Montreal-based artist that grew up in Drummondville, QC. He holds a BFA from UQAM in Montréal. Mathieu Lacroix has recently exhibited at the Off Biennale of Contemporary African Art in Dakar, Senegal, at the Clark Center, Montréal, at Maison de la culture Côte-des- Neiges, Montréal, and at CIRCA art actuel in Montreal. He has performed in many locations, for example at the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance in Toronto and at Dazibao, Montréal. His works can be found in the collections of la Ville de Montréal and la Ville de Drummondville.
