This multidisciplinary exhibition around the religion of hockey in Québec was first presented at Maison de la culture de Longueuil in 2015 and more recently at Artcite Gallery in Windsor, Ontario in early 2019. It features two main installations inspired by theologist Olivier Bauer’s research; the altar, on which the visitors are invited to put their hockey related knick knacks offerings next to a television and the confessional, an isolation booth in which the spectator listens to the speech of an angry coach who eventually does an exotic dance around a hockey stick pole. Other pieces such as a stained glass portrait of Maurice Richard and a pyramid of screenprinted “beer boxes” are also part of this peculiar hommage to our national sport. This project was supported by a research grant the Council of the Arts of Canada. A short video documentation of the exhibition was produced by Galerie Les Trois C in Lasalle (Montreal). Here are some pictures from previous exhibitions in Longueuil and Lasalle:
