Maryse Larivière: Love Sex Dreams: Your Delusion, My Reality

May 2 – May 23 , 2015

Opening May 2 at 7:00pm


Fuck your negativity, your cynical crap and your boredom. Wipe that frown upside down. Don’t bring your bitching to Love Sex Dreams, the newest digital lounge and crusingworld to hit the downtown core. You think you’re fucking special? Nobody’s special at Love Sex Dreams. Everyone is glamorous, sexy, brilliant. We have social capital, secret codes, cigarettes, sexy objects, art objects, fetish objects, birds, fingers, a magic carpet, party lights, booze, a giant candle, dripping wax, an Italian pornstar-politician and an interview with her ex. Love Sex Dreams is pure seduction, pure surface. And nothing’s more seductive than the surface. Touch it lightly, playfully. Whisper to it. Tease it. Make quick breaths. Perfect. At Love Sex Dreams, everyone’s invited but nobody’s getting laid.Arthur R. RoseMaryse Larivière’s practice crosses art, literature, politics and theory; it takes the form of text, performance, sculpture, collage and video.

Originally from Montreal, Larivière received her MFA from Guelph University. She is currently a PhD candidate in Art & Visual Culture at the University of Western Ontario, specializing in art writing and artist novels.
