Mathew Lacosse once crafted a scaled down section of an institution’s grand stairwell from the remnants of an architecture experiment deemed too dangerous by that very institution. His recent works and research share an interest in the complexity of materials and, especially, a discussion of materials as actors in larger processes of creation, transformation, and destruction.
Mathew Lacosse is a Canadian artist living in Oslo, Norway. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours from the University of Manitoba (2018) He has exhibited at Gallery 623 (Solo, Winnipeg), Platform Centre for Photographic and Digital Arts (Group, Winnipeg), and curated exhibitions at the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, GoSA (Winnipeg), Nuit Blanche Winnipeg, among others. His writing has appeared in SCAN Journal and rip/torn magazine. Lacosse is currently working in collection management with the Nasjonalmuseet of Norway.
