BGL FANCY a film by Benjamin Hogue
Documentary 83 min Québec, Canada, 2017 Language : French with English subtitles Production : Benjamin Hogue - La Soute After a twenty-year-long career, the contemporary art group BGL (Jasmin Bilodeau, Sébastien Giguère and Nicolas Laverdière) are offered a wonderful and colossal challenge. In a short period of time, they are to create and oversee two monumental public art pieces – one in Montréal and the other in Toronto – and represent Canada during the 56th Biennale in Venice. What better moment than to shine the spotlight on this immensely creative trio and allowing us to take a retrospective look on their prolific and disconcerting legacy. This fairy-tale like documentary, entangles humour, extravagance, oneirism and camaraderie.
