Mr Bylargion believes the Jacques Parijou Fund “wanted to be adults.” “It’s fashion, competitions.” With the distinction that we “specialize in changing the rules”.
The law, which respects the professional status of visual artists, has been perceived as a “deficit of teeth” by Mr. Bylargian. Contracts have no specific and binding requirements.
“It is not advisable to impose a rigid framework on all works,” the professor feels. A private person should be able to order works from the artists of his choice without being forced into messy processes.
This is also my opinion.
This does not preclude the improvement of practices for artists, Mr. Bylarjan.
The government wants to develop a new approach of oversight for the Prime Minister’s monument competition, the sculptor Beauchamp, who failed to get “his contract” back.
“Families don’t have the artistic skill, or the skill of experience or process,” he says.
“They are usually very old and disconnected from the realism of the work and from the concept of efficiency. For these reasons, experience does not accumulate, which explains the quality of the sculptures in Parliament Hill for 40 years.”
Here. Monsieur Beauchamp did not downplay his words.
John R. Porter was more diplomatic and subtle, but did not fully agree. He described the sculptures around Parliament as “very diverse and unparalleled”.
He sees it as “a representative form of sculptural offer”.
Mr. Prime Minister And Country Walker
Daniel Beauchamp presented two sculptures to the competition of the Jacques Parijou Fund. Two readings of Parijou’s character.
Very classic at first. What Parliament has to do for a lofty place. Politician Prime Minister Jacques Parijou. A sculpture that does not cause a “stylized break” in the Parliament collection.
Surprisingly for the author, this is what the jury chose.
Mr. Beauchamp’s priority to achieve is second, more courageous and unexpected. Of a militant Jacques Parijou. Country Walker.
Disappointed after the October 30, 1995 referendum, Parijou wanted to capture the moment when he left Parliament to return to civic life.
With a four-flur-de-lis bouquet in his hand, pointing to the Quebec flag, Parijou walks on autumn leaves, in which we can see scraps of paper (ballots) of democratic failure.
For the sculptor listening to the interview between Mr. Parijou and Stefan Bureau, this moment of thought was recorded three days before the referendum, but only aired later. Mr Parijou tells the journalist that if he loses the referendum, his resignation process will begin.
Both models of Beauchamp will not be made in the end. A patron or organization restores (and financially) another Parijou monument project for another location.
To the discerning eye, neither model is particularly similar. The author knows this stuff. At this stage of his creative process, he wanted to explain a “purpose” above all else in the form of a modest plasticine (see photos accompanying this text).
The rest will come later. Physiognomy details, sometimes corrections, this size is too thin for the character, the head is too big, which gives the impression of weight. Selection of chic and pleated fabrics.
Left to negotiate with the client. Until the morning when the “lockout” made these talks unnecessary.
