The Quebec Academy of 'Pataphysics is a Francophone Secret Society for Knowledge, founded in 1989 by writer Line Mc Murray (Her Luminescence), nine years after her encounter with French playwright and 'Pataphysicist Eugene Ionesco in 1980.  This Academy brings together Quebec artists, writers, poets and thinkers. Among its members, let us underline the presence of the artists COZIC and Florent Veilleux, and the poet Raôul Duguay.


Since 2016, the artist Céline B. La Terreur, as Her Numinescence, is at the head of this organization, hosting and organizing the Convents of the Academy, at the request of the founder, Her Luminescence.

Céline B. La Terreur is at the helm of the experimental music and video collective Les Céline B. La Terreur since their not very bright debut at Musique Plus in 2004. Since then, Les Céline B. La Terreur have been exploring the joys of stereotypes, vodka tastings and avant-garde delusions. They make a point of producing exceptionally little music and have become THE reference in terms of desynchronized lip sync.

Céline B. La Terreur is a feminist artist who is interested in social phenomena that reveal the condition and affirmation of women and victims of violence.  

 

Sensitive to the political and psychological dimensions, she explores feminine aspirations and fantasies taken in the network of links between femininity, power, freedom and masculinity. She has also been working with several Duplessis Orphans since 2012 as part of a large-scale project documenting their stories.  

Integrating video, photography, performance, painting and sculpture, his works play various subversive strategies including social engagement, humor, excess, satire, derision, irreverence and sometimes resort to symbols and romantic codes, sometimes to female representations from the popular musical or television culture. In this, the artist refers as much to the beginning of 19th century feminism as to some of its recent manifestations in contemporary culture.  

Refusing to partition her practice into one thought, one technique, the art of Céline B. La Terreur testifies to a keen curiosity for the diversity and richness of life. She affirms that there is a time for everything: a time for social action (hence her involvement with the Duplessis Orphans and her research in women's conditions), a time for aesthetic research, a time to take oneself seriously, a time not to take oneself seriously (hence the 'Pataphysics and her band, Ze Céline B. La Terreur).

 

While Céline B. La Terreur’s work captures the claim of the rights of women and the most vulnerable in society and the progressive affirmation of their identity, it is nonetheless a form of bittersweet commentary. on a world where women and victims of violence often still face misunderstanding, injustice and inequality.

SEMPER VIGENS MULIER

The coat of arms of Céline B. La Terreur was designed by the artist and writer Gleason Théberge of the Quebec Academy of Pataphysics.

Symbolizing Céline B. La Terreur, whose Chinese astrological sign is the snake, ouroboros is here symbol of infinity. Red and black symbolize power and energy. The Latin motto is translated here (awkwardly) by: The woman is always in all her strength.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Céline B. La Terreur works with the support of gallerist Joyce Yahouda since 2002 and wishes to highlight the appointment of Joyce Yahouda as Gallery of the Year at the 2012 Visual Arts Gala.
