Marcel Lessard is a sculptor and painter living and working on the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nations.
For over ten years, Lessard has worked inside of people’s homes handling commodity artworks. During which, the repetition of the work has led to an interest in the home as a site of identity. This largely informs the critical consideration of his practice - art objects pertaining to domestic identities and how it functions as an object in a domestic space.
Lessard explore these ideologies by working extensively with pseudo-architectural diagrams and notes before producing sculptures and paintings, while considering the subject of the ego characterized through ownership and display of art objects.
