MONDOU, Pierrette (1945)

Pierrette Mondou holds an Honours BEd from the Université de Montréal and an MEd from the Université de Sherbrooke (1982). With an interest in working with fibres, she set up a studio in Victoria, British Columbia during a year-long stay in 1983, as well as in Charente (France) in 1984. She has participated in many exhibitions throughout Quebec and has produced works housed in a number of museums. In 1998, Mondou presented a retrospective entitled Jalons 1977-1998 at the Vieux-Palais de Saint-Jérôme (now the Musée d’art contemporain des Laurentides). The show comprised works reflective of her artistic journey, which has evolved from tapestries to the use of highly textured, marouflaged paper as a base for scratchboard drawings and collages in the shape of objects/clothing. Les camisoles série II (1993-1994), for example, featured raised sections of fibres mounted on the wall.
