The denunciations of Marc Séguin
April 23, 2011 - Annie Cohen-Solal, Le Devoir
"Failures, exposes Marc Séguin, contrasts with those that we see these days in Chelsea. I was immediately hooked by a force, an irony, a social critic who take no detour. By dating the paintings of unexpected characters, but from our collective memory, first of all, thrown together and forced to meet in a potpourri salutary: Lee Harvey Oswald, a pope, Roman Abramovic, a stuffed raven, general Nazis, Julian Assange, St. Teresa of Avila. For a world in black and white, then with red daubs, the voice of the artist, as so many reports of unacceptable scandals: a devastated church, a confessional, a concentration camp abandoned. By the incongruity of the media used, finally: tar, coal, ash, huge skull in white feathers, retouched photos, bird pinned to the canvas, map of military attack. The tragic humor and gothic irony emerge and seem to scream: Welcome to the world of Marc Séguin!"
