Biography

Jonathan Plante (b. 1976) lives and works in Montreal. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies at Concordia University. His art practice often takes the form of multidisciplinary installations. He explores the question of presence through the transitory stages from “artwork” to “documentation of an artwork”. He spent 2005 and 2006 at the De Ateliers, in Amsterdam. During his stay in the Netherlands, he developed solo and group exhibitions. He obtained recognition in Montreal with the first edition of the Quebec Triennial exhibition curated and hosted by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. In 2010 and 2011, his artworks were featured in two solo exhibitions: Palindrome at the Musée d’art contemporain des Laurentides and Parallaxe at Galerie Division. He participated to the 2012 edition of the Symposium international d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul. He then created the exhibition for youth Lapincyclope at Vox, in 2013, before opening 2014 with the solo exhibition Moonwalk at Galerie Hugues Charbonneau. His artworks are part of many private and public collections, including the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
