Born in Rimouski, Simon-Pier Lemelin employs a kind of multidisciplinary approach in his work, adapting the medium being used to the artistic purpose in mind. For several years now he has been examining in his work the more specific issues of identity and territory. By exploring an individual and collective past, he attempts to understand the ways of today's society. At ORANGE, he presents the series Énoncé sociobiologique, volumes 1 et 2, made up of large-format photographs posted on the exterior walls of Saint-Hyacinthe's Marché-Centre. These images, taken right in Saint-Hyacinthe, show various mises en scène revealing the kind of predator we have become. The photographs operate as a window onto playful business activities, in which hunters break open butcher and delicatessen counters in search of packaged meat and fishers do the same at the fishmonger's in search of frozen fish.
