The practice of Celia Perrin Sidarous presents assemblages and arrangements, following a logic that is at once internal and associative. Her photographs offer a considered way of looking at collected objects within the visual rhetoric of the studio. Referencing histories and the overarching structures of still life, interior arrangement and the placement of objects for display and exhibition, her photographs nonetheless confound the conditions through which everyday objects are usually interpreted and the ways we navigate the material world. Celia Perrin Sidarous holds an MFA from Concordia University. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions at Parisian Laundry (Montréal), the Esker Foundation (Calgary), Campbell House Museum (Toronto), the Dunlop Art Gallery (Regina), The Banff Centre (Banff), WWTWO (Montréal), VU (Québec), Gallery 44 (Toronto), and was featured in the Biennale de Montréal 2016. She is the recipient of a number of grants and awards, including the 2011 Barbara Spohr Memorial Award. Her works are part of several private and public collections, including the collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. She lives and works in Montréal.
