NSCAD University (Halifax, NS)
Louis-Charles Dionne is a multidisciplinary artist, educator, and researcher from the South shore of Montreal now based in Halifax. Graduated from Concordia University with a BFA in Sculpture and Art History, he is now ﬁnishing his MFA in Fine and Media Arts at NSCAD University. He also holds a graduate diploma in Post-Secondary Education from the Université du Québec à Montréal. His practice is anchored in sculpture, installation, and public art, and has evolved from foundry work; mostly with bronze and cast iron. Recently, Dionne has been working in stone carving and installation, and he has been developing a performance collective and a collaborative curatorial practice. Dionne repositions mundane artifacts in order to twist and question relations with everyday objects. His work reorients the material cultures around us through slight shifts in their composition, framing and utility.
