Samuel Roy-Bois is an artist, musician and performer. He is known for his large scale immersive installations, where the line between work of art exhibition space is often blurred. Defining art as experience first, Roy-Bois conceives work as metafiction, through which he questions the complex relationship one has with architecture and the built environment.

Originally from Quebec City, Samuel Roy-Bois is currently residing in Vancouver. He acquired his BFA from Université Laval in Quebec (1996) and a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Concordia University in Montréal (2001). His installations have been shown across Canada and internationally with recent solo exhibitions such as Let us, then, be up and doing..., Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2008); Divertissements, Point  éphémère, Paris (2007); Improbable and ridiculous, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Montréal (2006); Faire l’indépendence, Quartier éphémère, Montréal (2005); The Monologue (Contempt and seduction), Eyelevel Gallery, Halifax (2005); and, Fractures mortelles, Galerie de l’École des arts visuels, Université Laval, Quebec (2004). His upcoming solo exhibition Polarizer runs from March 14 – April 26, 2009 at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery’s temporary location (324 5th St. S).
Everyone is welcome to attend the opening of Roy-Bois work at the SAAG Sat Mar 14
