After studying architecture at the Université de Montréal, Éric Daudelin began working in photography and as an artistic director in film and television. His artwork explores various mediums (painting, sculpture, engraving, drawing, photography, artist’s books, murals) and includes two Montreal projects for the integration of art into architecture: each comprised of eight photographic murals, Console (1980), located at the former Centre d’hébergement Christophe-Colomb, and Vous êtes ici (1982) at the Centre d’hébergement Armand-Lavergne have since been taken down. Daudelin’s approach favours the principle of economy of means and reveals an equal interest in systems and organization and in material and natural phenomena. In addition to completing several residencies abroad, he has participated in several major fairs and exhibited his work in Quebec and Europe.
