Discussion with Annie Gauthier and Milutin Gubash as part of the exhibition You, Me and You.
Annie Gauthier is an artist member of the performance collective Women With Kitchen Appliances. With this collective, she has conceived and presented numerous performance in Canada and the United States. Her last actions comprise a performance as part as Setting the Table: Bargaining Women's Equality Conference of the The Canadian Union of Public Employees and an installation, a performance and a kitchen certification as part as the Québec Triennial, Rien ne se perd, rien ne se crée, tout se transforme. She holds a bachelor degree in Visual Arts (UQAM) and a DESS in Cultural Organisation Management (HEC, Montréal)
Born in Novi Sad (Serbia) and living in Québec since 2005, Milutin Gubash has mounted exhibitions in Québec, Canada, the United States and Europe, including shows at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (“LOTS”, 2007), Optica (“Born Rich, Getting Poorer”, 2009), Galerie 3015 in Paris and RLBQ in Marseille (“Which Way to the Bastille?”, 2008). His practice encompasses photography, video, and performance, and regularly features the participation of his family and friends, who portray versions of themselves in Gubash’s Do-It-Yourself sitcoms, soap operas, family photos, and improv theatre pieces. Using simple means and often comical gestures, conventional domestic, social and professional roles are mixed up and up-ended as we are invited to follow the artist in reconsidering our own identities and environments.
