Meeting and discussion with Alexis Gros-Louis and Terry Randy Awashish
Önenha’; Wen’wa’ / [Superimpositions]
Galeries Weekend Montréal

Artist Alexis Gros-Louis (Wendat) and curator Terry Randy Awashish (Atikamekw) will receive the public in the exhibition space to uncover the process that preceded Önenha’; Wen’wa’ / [Superimpositions]. The exhibition was developed around a reflection on territory and language, attempts to mark space, seeking to circumscribe identities. The installation process, the technical devices and the codes of the exhibition make it a work in itself.

Alexis Gros-Louis is a Wendat multidisciplinary artist from Wendake, Ké:bec. Alexis received his MFA from NSCAD University in 2020. He also received his BFA, with a major in photography, from the Faculty of Fine Arts at University Concordia (2017) and a college diploma in Arts and Design from LaSalle College (2014). His work revolves around themes such as identity, Indigenous subjects, dominant culture, categorization systems, obsolescence, as well as fundamental questions about art, artistic practice and its present and historical.

Terry Randy Awashish is Atikamekw Nehirowisiw from the community of Opitciwan. Multidisciplinary artist and graphic designer, he mainly focuses on artistic performance. After obtaining a certificate in fine arts at UQÀM, he successfully completed a bachelor’s degree in graphic design at the UQÀM school of design in May 2019. In April 2017, Terry won the Manitou-Kiuna prize. Thus, he received a recognition scholarship from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education of Quebec.
