Artist Stéphane Langlois has created a brain in aluminum with some holes through the brain. Some parts are polished and some parts have a patina like rust. Over the years, the patina will continue to generate over all the areas and become – comparable to Alzheimer’s and dementia – a progressive degenerative disease of the brain, in which thinking and memory become seriously impaired.
Stéphane Langlois received a BA in psychology, then went on to study sculpture at the Maison des métiers d’art de Québec. He created his first public artwork in 2007 for the library of the Collège-des-Jésuites at Quebec City.
Working in wood and metal, Langlois has participated in several symposia and contests, and served as a jury member of art competitions. His work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions, and he has been recognized by the Société de développement des entreprises culturelles (SODEC) and Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec (CALQ).
Works of art by Langlois are part of the Collection Loto-Québec, the Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City and several other private collections worldwide.
Originally from Saint-Marc-des-Carrières, Langlois now lives and works in Neuville near Quebec City.
