With a BFA from the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (1982) and an MFA from the Université du Québec à Montréal (1985), Guy Nadeau creates artwork that revolves around the notion of territory. Like strange transplanted forms, his outdoor public works regenerate more than they blend into the natural environment, while those exhibited in galleries create playful spaces, their manufactured or handcrafted materials producing schematized forms that seem to come from another world. Despite an approach that has remained unchanged over several decades, Nadeau reveals a constant reflection upon the process of creation and experimentation in Voûte d’Ulysse (1992), located at René-Lévesque Park in Lachine, and Strophe-121 (2012), housed at the Musée d’art contemporain des Laurentides.
