Vernissage and Artist-guided gallery tour: November 3 at 6 pm
Art Hive with Raphaël Biscotti (in-person): November 26, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
The phenomenon of anxiety and its creative potential animates Biscotti’s artistic practice. Through the silent, slow, and demanding process of manual work, the artist tries to evoke the feeling that drawing allows him to express and evacuate. Care and empathy are at the core of his project, and gentleness emanates from the work, creating a poetic and sensitive universe that reimagines anxiety through the prisms of nature and domestic space.
Raphaël Biscotti is originally from Val-David, in the Upper Laurentians. He studied at Concordia University in Studio Arts where he had the chance to be an exchange student in Finland in the Arctic Arts and Design program for two semesters. In 2018, he graduated and began a Master’s degree in Visual and Media Arts at UQAM the following year. He is finishing his second year of the MA and will start writing this summer.
