Biography – Jean-Jules Soucy

Jean-Jules Soucy is a native of the town of La Baie in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, where he continues to reside and work. His art practice, which extends over more than two decades, is distinctive for the way it combines installation and sculpture, and for how it encourages the community to take part in making art which, as a result, is all the better received by the public.
