Frederic Bigras-Burrogano is a Montreal-born visual artist currently based in Montreal, CA. His work is broadly concerned with national identities and the role landscape and rural communities plays in their formation. Photography, research, 3D printing and artifacts are used to document the ambiguity of preconceived ideas versus the expectation of the viewer. He is primarily interested in the construction of cultural heritage, the materiality of imaged communities and its semiotics. He aims at creating a space in which the viewer is forced to re-examine his position concerning a phenomenon or concept.
