Before she became a painter, a sculptor and an engraver, Joann Coté studied in women’s fashion. It led her to understand that her interests did not lie as much in cloth design but in the spirit and avant-garde movement of the industry. Fortunately for almost ten years now, Joann Côté has devoted herself exclusively to painting, sculpture and performance art.
In 2016, for the Montréal’s Grand Prix, Joann Côté's QUEEN-OBJECT, CONSUME ME, COLLECT ME performance art piece was presented in the streets of Old Montréal. The multidisciplinary artist sent out her most recent creation, QUEEN-OBJECT, to grace the streets of the pedestrian section of Saint Paul Street West.
QUEEN-OBJECT is made from an array of banal lacklustre and non-recyclable materials… To be worn by a model with alabaster-like skin, the majestic artwork has parade around through the streets of Old Montréal.
At 5 p.m., QUEEN-OBJECT took a seat in her throne in Galerie Blanche. Also was unveiled the artist’s recent collection of works, consisting of paintings and sculptures. RED DRESS, another of Joann Côté’s recent creations, was presented and exhibited in front of Galerie Blanche, at 218 Saint Paul Street West.
