Sound, image and light: Dominique Blais purposely uses the basic instruments of the "society of spectacle" with the intention of dispossessing them of their better ability to suffocate the senses and perception. [...]
Drawing primarily in a pre-existing sound material and having willingly use of sound equipment and other manufactured articles, the work of Dominique Blais probe the audible and visible and causes the eruption of infra-ordinary phenomena, and with, the resurgence and projection of mental images able to nourish an imagination stunted paradoxically by the visual overflow of information society and communication prefering, unlike the artist, the proliferation from the working drawing.
