Curatorial Statement

Adorno is pleased to present the inaugural initiative by the Collectif des Créateurs Canadiens (CCC), “FICTIONS”, an immersive virtual experience broadcasting from Montreal, featuring works by eight Canadian designers, both established and up-and-coming: Atelier Zébulon Perron, Claste Collection, David Umemoto, Lambert & Fils, Loïc Bard, Pascale Girardin, SSSVLL and Yannick Pouliot. The exhibition is the CCC’s inaugural initiative and a collaboration with acclaimed contemporary curator, design specialist, and architect Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte, himself a Montreal native.

An atypical love letter to the northern city, FICTIONS is a freeform exploration of shape, materiality, and function. Set in a nondescript post-apocalyptic environment in the heart of Montreal, the thirteen pieces await with poise for the viewer’s gaze. Familiar in their appearance, these fictions of mutated furniture blur the lines of design and art, and question who the user might be, what purpose they are meant to inhabit.
