DANS LA PEAU DE L'HISTOIRE. BECOMING JOAN DULARGE | RÉMI BELLIVEAU
From September 7 to October 21, 2023.
L’Empremier. Live at Beaubassin (1970) (2023), takes us to an open-air amphitheatre where the Joan Dularge group, L’Empremier, performs live for the camera. As a pastiche of Adrian Maben’s film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii (1974), shot in the deserted ruins of the ancient city, Belliveau’s version features an imaginary story of Acadian rock music, in which classics by Zachary Richard, Beausoleil Broussard, 1755, and Rocambole are covered by contemporary, professional musicians, pinkfloyded and ultimately joandularged.
The Roman treasures that served as decor are replaced, for the show in Beaubassin, by creations by contemporary Acadian artist Paul Edouard Bourque.
As a complement to this exhibition at VOX, Artexte presents Joan Dularge's artist file who’s written, sound, and photographic documents bear witness to the creative and musical advent of the legendary concert in Artexte's reading room on the third floor of the same address.
