Pascal Grandmaison‘s conceptual art explores the relationship of a part to the whole and how one perceives a work of art through the act of capturing an image. His art is expressed through film, video, photography, and sculpture.
An example of this is the Exhibition “I Lost You in the Desert”, which was showcased in 2010. The exhibition features twelve rocks gathered from the islands of Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame that were originally moved in 1967 for the Montreal metro system. To give the rocks a new meaning, one side of each rock was painted black, thus transforming them from their original environment.
