What would be our future together if there is any?, 2016, silkscreened printed paper collage, wood board and paint, 101 x 83 cm (40 x 32.5")


Dominique Pétrin lives and works in Montreal. Her practice incorporates silkscreen on paper that have been cut and glued to the wall and floor, creating an immersive environment. These large-scale installations, often ephemeral and conceived specifically for their venue, are freely inspired by Pompeii’s frescos, the history of ornamentation and cyberculture.

Dominique Pétrin was a member of a petrochemical rock band named Les Georges Leningrad from 2000 to 2007. She has collaborated with Sophie Calle, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Banksy and with choreographers Antonjia Livingstone (Berlin) and Jennifer Lacey (Paris) on a performance called Culture & Administration & Trembling. This last collaboration was presented at many festivals such as Impulsanz (Vienna), American Realness (New York) and Fierce (Birmingham). She obtained numerous grants from the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec, leading her to residencies at the Banff Centre (Canada), in Nunavik (Canada) and at the OMI International Artist in residency Program (USA). Her work has been exhibited at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal as part of the Quebec Triennial of 2012 and has been presented throughout Canada, England, France, Belgium and the United States. She was longlisted in 2014 for the Sobey Art Award.
