LE LIEU QUEBEC 2015

Dans la continuité de son projet intitulé Dear PM, Chris Lloyd nous propose ici de rassembler des éléments clés de son travail, soit sa correspondance avec le Premier ministre, son statut de candidat indépendant dans le comté de Papineau (suite à la supercherie de sa candidature au sein du Parti conservateur), le sujet récurent de Tim Hortons comme symbole de l’identité canadienne ainsi que son projet Everyday Goalie, dans lequel il incarne un gardien de but en constante action de blocage de tirs fictifs. Textes, photos, vidéos, documents et livres joindront ainsi les milieux de la politique, du social, du sportif et du spectacle.

As the Dear PM letter-writing project with the Prime Minister of Canada nears the end of its' fifteenth year, artist Chris Lloyd brings it together along with 3 other key elements of his practice: His status as a politician, demonstrated through a 4-year infiltration project of the Conservative Party of Canada, which terminated when his short-lived candidacy was revealed to be an "art project", and his real candidacy as an Independent Candidate in Papineau began; The recurrent motif of Tim Horton as a symbol of Canadiana; and his performance and video work in his alter-ego, Everyday Goalie.
