Née en 1976, Dominique Pétrin est une artiste multidisciplinaire originaire de Montréal. Tant en performance qu’en arts visuels, elle s’intéresse tout d’abord aux moyens d’altérer la perception et la conscience, que ce soit en déjouant les processus cognitifs de la vision ou par l’utilisation de l’hypnose en performance. Elle a été membre du groupe Les Georges Leningrad et a collaboré notamment avec Sophie Calle et Pil et Galia Kollektiv. Elle a performé au Frieze Art Fair, Londres, au festival Désordres, à Lille, France, MUTEK, Viva!, la Triennale Québécoise au Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal et a participé au 29e Symposium d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul.

Dominique Pétrin brings the image to its highest degree of saturation and develops an intense dialogue between images, their support, and their configuration. Pazzazz is a Greco-Roman fresco that recalls the music-hall of the 70s. Excess, wealth, and decadence are represented in an ornamental style that is almost threatening. Between dreams and apparitions, the optical illusion is lost in a maze of pleasure and abuse, enjoyment and intoxication.
