Trained as a ceramist, Gilbert Poissant gradually expanded into other technical and aesthetic spheres. This multi-disciplinary artist has created murals, installations and sculptures, employing various materials, such as stone, wood, paper and found objects, as well as digital processes. Renowned for his contribution to public art, Gilbert has produced more than 40 commissions of artworks that are incorporated into the architecture.

Selected projects

 

Mon atlas 3D

Installation / 2019-2021 / Paper, pins / 110 cm x 244 cm x 367 cm

On the scale of a large model, I create a utopian territory in homage to the places I inhabit. This self-portrait, built on the oversized enlargement of the Kingsburg, Nova Scotia area maritime map, illustrates my interest in architecture and geography as well as my attachment to the land.
