Guillaume Adjutor Provost is an interdisciplinary artist, researcher and professor of sculpture at the Université de Moncton. His artistic practice is motivated by a desire to review what has long existed on the periphery of dominant historical discourses: class consciousness, counter-culture, vernacular imagery, and experiences of queerness. Through various approaches, Guillaume Adjutor Provost makes use of referents, forms, and objects from grass roots imagery. A certain familiarity of the language stems from a deliberately inclusive or democratized artistic expression. Its practice regularly takes the form of curated installations; by working with collaborators, these encounters influence the materialization of interdisciplinary works hybridizing collections, sculptures, drawings, photographs, performances, video or textual works.
