inspired-by-dominique-patrinArt lovers need to pop in to Contemporary Calgary immediately to check out the latest exhibition. Contemporary Calgary is pleased to present Three Withdrawal Movements for an ATM by Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist Dominique Pétrin. This site-responsive installation finds the walls and floors of the gallery wallpapered with hand silkscreened works on paper, featuring bold lines & colours and repetitive motifs that create a world that is dizzying and hypnotizing.

Drawing inspiration from Dominique Pétrin’s exhibition I searched high and low, all over downtown to find some fabulous items that have all of the style and panache of this exhibition. Whether you choose to don something just as dizzying and psychedelic when you attend the opening reception on June 11th is your own choice, but I say - why not?!

About the Artist: Dominique Pétrin is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Montreal, Canada. In visual arts as well as performance, her interests converge towards producing altered states of consciousness and perception, be it through cognitive or visual illusions, or, for her performances, the use of hypnosis. Since 2014, her work has taken on monumental proportions, including the wrapping of a subway station and several other buildings in Montreal. A former member of the band Les Georges Leningrad, she has also collaborated with such renowned artists as Sophie Calle, Pil & Galia Kollectiv and choreographer Antonija Livingstone. In 2014, she was nominated for the Sobey Art Award longlist. Her work has been exhibited across Canada, in France, USA and the United Kingdom.
