Long Description:
A native of Asbestos, Québec, Goulet studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal and l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM) in the early seventies. Since then, Michel Goulet has had a successful career as a sculptor and installation artist. With multiple solo exhibitions in Montreal, Québec City and Ottawa, and after representing Canada at the 1988 Venice Biennale, Goulet has established his staying power in galleries the world over. Teaching sculpture at Ottawa University and UQÀM, he has also given back to the community he came from, ensuring the rise of a new generation of artists in Québec and Canada.

Echoes incorporates ten of Goulet’s trademark stainless steel chair sculptures. The chair’s location in a public space invites interaction and conversation as a way of overcoming the typically urban alienation it alludes to. Meanwhile, the chairs are all set at different angles along the beach, suggesting the multitude of perspectives and possibilities open to people in our privileged socio-economic position.
