Les Fermires Obsdes is a collective of three artists from Quebec: Annie Baillargeon, Eugnie Cliche and Catherine Plaisance. Located in Quebec City, the collective works chiefly in performance and is characterized by kitsch, eccentric uniforms and nonsensical stagings designed to critique the modern world. The women often perform at public markets, in department store windows and on commercial streets. Grounded in a reflection on human interrelations, their art is a blend of tragedy and burlesque. It has been seen mainly in Canada, but also in Wales, Poland, Ireland and Australia. True to form, the trio is spurning conventional exhibition venues at ORANGE, opting instead to produce an installation and performances inspired by games, carnivals and parades in a downtown Saint-Hyacinthe park.
