La Théorie du Complot

Mathieu Lambert


Mathieu Lambert’s practice is influenced by a wide range of media, including film, photography, design and architecture, engaging, among other things, with the workings of the entertainment industry and the circulation of collective imaginaries. In La Théorie du Complot, Lambert mixes strategies borrowed from the world of cinema with personal memories, news items and fragments of collective experience. Bringing together pictures, objects made by the artist, and documents of fictional events (rented from a cinema production outlet), La Théorie du Complot proposes an open investigation into the strengths and weaknesses exposed by current conspiratorial narratives.

Mathieu Lambert was born in France in 1986 and currently lives and works in Montreal, where he is pursuing a degree in Fine Arts at Concordia University. He has participated in numerous exhibitions both in Quebec and abroad, most notably at Galerie de Bailli, Epinal (2010); Margate Photo Festival (2011); Triangle Gallery, Philadelphia (2011); Naçao Gallery, Shanghai (2013); Design Terminal, Budapest (2013); and French Restaurant, Montreal (2014). His project Fake Tales of America was published in 2009 by French Fourch editions. An interdisciplinary artist, Mathieu Lambert is also the founder of Matmos press, a Montreal-based publisher specializing in artists’ books.
