ABOUT ALAIN-MARTIN RICHARD

Alain-Martin Richard lives and works in Quebec. As an artist, he has presented manoeuvre and performance works in North America, Europe and Asia. He also works as a curator, critic and essayist, publishing articles in numerous journals on theatre, performance, installation and manoeuvre. He was a member of the former collectives Inter/Le Lieu and The Nomads , and remains active with Les Causes perdues in and Folie/Culture. His works often deploy multiple planes of reality as in l'Atopie textuelle 2000 and The Route to Rosa 2006. Alain-Martin Richard is currently a visiting professor at Laval University's School of Visual Arts. His most recent manoeuvre project, Le bloc que j'habite, was just presented at the seventh edition of Manif d'art.
