Frédéric Lavoie will take advantage of his stay in Matapédia to continue working on his experimental video Insanus Boletus: an audiovisual narrative that captures the surprising encounters during his wanderings in the forest in search of mushrooms.


Frédéric Lavoie (1976, Montreal) holds a bachelor's degree in anthropology and a master's degree in visual and media arts. Through a heterogeneous practice that utilizes documentary or fictional elements, he produces narratives, group portraits, and thematic analyses. Archives, whether filmic, paper, or digital, constitute his main working material. His research revolves around issues related to listening and observation, and the nature/culture relationship, all approached critically. His works, whether video installations, photography, drawing, or objects, have been presented in galleries, artist-run centers, museums, and video events. Among his major achievements are the feature film La Nature Contre-Attaque (125min, 2019), his exhibition Le début de la fin at the McCord Museum (2014), and a mid-career retrospective at the Rimouski Regional Museum titled Réécritures (2014).
