It is distinguished as an artwork in which poetry and trash intersect. Beyond the superficially attractive high-society dress, attention is drawn to the current apparance-driven era that seems to dictate our lives. Through her QUEEN-OBJECT piece, artist Joann Côté, denounces the use of women as objects of consumption and promotion. She questions the sociological consequences of such practices by establishing a link between a quintessential luxury happening, over consumption, and the exploration of women as disposable and interchangeable commdities. 218 Saint Paul West Montreal, QC, H2Y 1Z9 Galerie Blanche info@galerieblanche.com
