Matthieu Binette has learned not to use an eraser. “A tip from my father, Berthin, who did his fine arts and was a teacher for 30 years. The error does not exist. So there is nothing to erase. Wise teaching if there is one, since without this notion which induces the fear of being wrong, learning and imagination or discovery are favored. Born in Timmins, Ontario, in 1977, but having grown up in Sherbrooke, Matthieu is one of those on whom school, an obligatory place of passage, has little impact. According to Ivan Illich, the state education system would worsen what it is supposed to improve anyway, since it destroys or devalues ​​autonomous productive capacities and, if you think about it a little, important learnings come from random circumstances.


Matthieu Binette’s artistic approach takes form in 1999, when he develops an unusual technique for creating his sculpture. Binette takes recycled metal wires, and melts them “drop by drop.” It is the accumulation of these metal drops that creates his figures and gives them their unique texture and elongated form.
