THE ROMAN DE REMORT, OR THE INHUMANE, VILLAINOUS FABLIAUX OF THE ULTIMATE CARNAVAL | MARION LESSARD
From September 7 to October 21, 2023.
In The Roman de Remort, or the inhumane, villainous fabliaux of the Ultimate Carnaval (2023), Marion Lessard appropriates the medieval literary model to present the human character of Remort, who feels deeply remorseful for the centuries of harm that has been inflicted upon so-called Nature. Here, the blending of humans and animals is taken to extravagant and absurd new heights through disguises, split personalities, and theatrical reversals and turnarounds.
Combining medieval satire with musical comedy, Marion Lessard’s exhibition at the Galerie de l’UQAM will take the form of an immersive work in which gallant language masks and unmasks the exhilarating horror of the possible end of the human world.
