UNE CRÉATION AUDACIEUSE PROPULSÉE PAR PHI

Parallèlement à l'exposition Army of Vandals, se concluant au Centre Phi ce samedi 2 avril, Phi signe la production et la réalisation d'une vidéo artistique mettant en vedette la vandale montréalaise et son armée.

Présentée en exclusivité durant 24 heures sur VICE Canada et États-Unis, l'œuvre, entièrement tournée dans les espaces du Centre Phi, est accompagnée d'une entrevue avec l'artiste qui explique sa démarche créative.

«It's a very exciting project. I brought her to life when it comes to human form, because she's been living in my head, and in the streets, but it was just to make that transition. [...] It's basically just to show that the Vandal isn't just a piece of art, it's actually an idea that resonates with a lot of women across cultures, across languages, across countries, and that is a way to show it. Because it's very different to see an image that's drawn and painted and someone that is naked with a mask that's just looking at you and saying "What?"» - MissMe

Concept et direction artistique: MissMe
Réalisateur et directeur photo: George Fok
Productrices: Phoebe Greenberg et Penny Mancuso

MissMe

Vous avez peut-être déjà aperçu les créations de MissMe en vous promenant dans les rues de Montréal. Travaillant la nuit sous le couvert de l’anonymat, l’énigmatique artiste parcourt la ville pour y fixer des œuvres en papier, dont ses Vandals qui sont ici mises à l’honneur. Ces figures géantes, toutes d’apparence et de taille semblables, montrent une femme ne portant qu’une cagoule et un t-shirt remonté pour dévoiler ses seins, qui sont en quelque sorte le véhicule de l’artiste pour dépeindre les nombreux visages de la féminité: agressivité, douceur, impolitesse, agacement. Créées avec l’intention de renverser les stéréotypes omniprésents dans les médias, les Vandals ne montrent jamais la femme en position de séduction; celle-ci se dresse forte et assurée, en pleine possession de son corps et de sa sexualité.

Le Centre Phi

Le Centre Phi, c’est des salles qui se transforment au gré des activités: lancement, conférence, colloque, projection, exposition, concert, spectacle, installation interactive. C’est des studios de création et de production, avec la technologie la plus sophistiquée, mise au service des besoins artistiques. C’est un centre multifonctionnel où l’art peut s’exprimer dans tous ses états. Et c’est surtout un lieu d’échanges, d’apprentissage, de découverte, de lancement, de tournage, d’enregistrement, etc.

Le Centre Phi est une initiative de Phi et de sa fondatrice, Phoebe Greenberg. Phi a pour mission d’offrir au public l’excellence dans le domaine des arts de toutes sortes et de tous les horizons.

PHI UNVEILS A BOLD MISSME CREATION


Parallel to the MissMe exhibition Army of Vandals at the Phi Centre, which closes this Saturday April 2, Phi produced and directed this conceptual video, which stars the Montreal vandal and her army and was filmed entirely at the Phi Centre.

For 24 hours, this video is presented exclusively on VICE Canada and USA. For this presentation, the piece is accompanied by a VICE interview with the artist, in which she shares the project's significance within her overall creative process.

"It's a very exciting project. I brought her to life when it comes to human form, because she's been living in my head, and in the streets, but it was just to make that transition. [...] It's basically just to show that the Vandal isn't just a piece of art, it's actually an idea that resonates with a lot of women across cultures, across languages, across countries, and that is a way to show it. Because it's very different to see an image that's drawn and painted and someone that is naked with a mask that's just looking at you and saying 'What?'" - MissMe

Director and Cinematographer: George Fok
Producers: Phoebe Greenberg and Penny Mancuso

MissMe

You may have already seen MissMe’s works on the streets of Montreal. Working under the cover of night, the enigmatic artist goes all over the city looking for spots to display her works, including her Vandals series, which is featured prominently in this exhibition. These giant figures, all the same height and appearance, present a woman wearing only a balaclava and a t-shirt lifted to show her breasts, which become the artist’s canvas for displaying the different faces of femininity: aggression, gentleness, insolence, provocation. Created with the intention of overturning the omnipresent stereotypes in the media, Vandals never shows the woman in a position of seduction. She stands tall and strong, in full possession of her body and her sexuality.

The Phi Centre

The Phi Centre is a versatile space with venues that adapt to accommodate the event at hand: launches, conferences, seminars, screenings, exhibitions, concerts, performances, interactive installations. It has creative studios and production suites equipped with the latest technology for all artistic needs. It’s a multifunctional centre where art can express itself in its various forms. It’s a space where people can exchange, learn, discover, launch, shoot, record, and more.

The Phi Centre is an initiative of Phi and its founder, Phoebe Greenberg. Phi’s mission is to provide the public with excellence in all types of art from every possible horizon.
