ABOUT ALAIN-MARTIN RICHARD

Alain-Martin Richard lives and works in Quebec. As an artist, he has presented manoeuvre and performance works in North America, Europe and Asia.

He was a member of the former collectives Inter/Le Lieu and The Nomads , and remains active with Les Causes perdues in© and Folie/Culture. His works often deploy multiple planes of reality as in l'Atopie textuelle (2000) and The Route to Rosa (2006). Alain-Martin Richard is currently a visiting professor at Laval University's School of Visual Arts. His most recent manoeuvre project, Le bloc que j'habite, was just presented at the seventh edition of Manif d'art.
