Born in Saint-Hyacinthe, Marc-Antoine K. Phaneuf lives and works in Montral. He is the co‑founder of the QQistes collective and pursues a personal practice as well. His works serve to inquire into the artistic act and cast a critical eye on the status of the artist. He uses video as an artistic medium but also as a means of capturing performance art. In Grosse Poutine [Large poutine], a single-shot video work produced for ORANGE, Phaneuf stages himself wolfing down fast food, ironically recasting the nutritional act as artistic act. This production demonstrates the close link between our dietary choices and cultural phenomena. The spare editing and the use of black and white recall the birth of video art, a medium now light years beyond.
