Annie Baillargeon

Annie Baillargeon has explored a multidisciplinary art based on an exalted and transgressive representation of the body.

Drawn to the relationship between various modes of expression, she combines digital photo-montage and watercolour to create unsettling frescoes with an existentialist bent. The body, which is the central motif in her work, is multiplied, staged, and transposed in strange and whimsical worlds where farce, vulgarity, satire, and tragedy collide. The individual is shown in all her sublimity as well as her most troubling moments.
