Synopsis

Presented in Quebec City at the MNBAQ

World Premiere

After spending 15 years in artistic and academic explorations at different American schools and universities, painter and ceramicist Jean-Pierre Larocque returned to Montreal at the turn of the 2000s. In this portrait film, Larocque opens his studio to viewers. Using charcoal “reluctantly” and grinding away slate like so many layers of skin, he is a creator of unfathomable sensitivity who shapes intriguing, enchanting works that play on time and eras while reminding us of our own human ghosts.

This film will also be presented in Montreal on March 22 and 30.
