Dans la peau de l’histoire. Becoming Joan Dularge

L’Empremier. Live at Beaubassin (1970) (2023), takes us to an open-air amphitheatre where the Joan Dularge group, L’Empremier, performs live for the camera. As a pastiche of Adrian Maben’s film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii (1974), shot in the deserted ruins of the ancient city, Belliveau’s version features an imaginary story of Acadian rock music, in which classics by Zachary Richard, Beausoleil Broussard, 1755, and Rocambole are covered by contemporary, professional musicians, pinkfloyded and ultimately joandularged. The Roman treasures that served as decor are replaced, for the show in Beaubassin, by creations by contemporary Acadian artist Paul Edouard Bourque. In addition to the exhibition at VOX, Joan Dularge’s archives will be presented in the Artexte consultation room on the third floor of the same address.
