The first major publication devoted entirely to Cooke-Sasseville’s work, this 116-page bilingual retrospective monograph includes a foreword by Rhéal Olivier Lanthier and François St-Jacques (Directors, Art Mûr), a preface by Claude Bélanger (General and Artistic Director, Manifestation international d’art de Québec), as well as essays by Anne-Marie Bouchard and Michael Rattray.
Well-known in the Québec art scene, this critically acclaimed duo has participated in major exhibitions, events and residencies in Québec, Mexico and Europe. With past successes including participations in important group shows such as the first Québec Triennial (Nothing is Lost, Nothing is Created, Everything is Transformed, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, 2008), as well as the 2010 instalment of the Québec City biennial (curated by the editor in chief of the award-winning international contemporary art magazine Art Papers, Sylvie Fortin), and with many projects underway, Cooke-Sasseville are restless. They have completed eight public art sculptures in the past three years alone – with more and more invitations being sent their way – and are now working on upcoming exhibition projects at Art Mûr (Montréal), the Stadtgalerie in Bern (Switzerland), the Foreman Art Gallery at Bishop’s University (Sherbrooke, Québec) and the CAMAC (Centre d’art – Marnay Art Centre), located in Marnay-sur-Seine, France.
