Patrick Bernatchez is an emerging multi-disciplinary artist whose work spans the media of painting, drawing, sound, installation, video, and photography. Since 2006 he has been working on a number of large-scale multi-media projects that incorporate industrial architecture as the place settings for explorations of metaphoric metamorphosis, the changing nature of industry and power and reflections on death, decay, and entropy.
His work has been shown internationally in solo exhibitions in The Netherlands, New York, and Paris. In Canada, his work has been exhibited widely at public art institutions including the Prairie Art Gallery (Grand Prairie, Alberta), Centre des arts actuels Skol (Montreal), Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, and in forthcoming exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Galerie de l’UQAM (Montréal).
