This catalogue is as colourful as its subject – an artist who situates her work between theatre and cynicism. It includes three texts: an essay by Louise Déry exploring the artist’s troubling world, where fantasy and derision reign hand in hand; an essay by Cecilia Casorati analyzing the act of performance through the practice of Myriam Laplante; and a statement by the artist about her performances. Published in conjunction with the exhibition La parodie du monde selon Myriam Laplante, presented at the Galerie de l’UQAM from September 5 to October 5, 2002.
