Palmerino was an interesting artist from Montreal. From performance art to sculptures, paintings, installations and so on, this interdisciplinary artist dedicated his life to Virgin Mary.
I first met him in 1997 at Notre-Dame Street, beside "Le Théâtre Corona". In December 17, 2000 the building burned down.
I met him again to bring a DVD with the images that I shot before the fired destroyed his studio, in his new home, where I had an opportunity to film him again. As always, he was productive and proud of his art works.
He passed away in 2005. Officially he was born in 1919.
See a documentary on Palmerino produced by David Gutnick, narrated by Gordon Pinsent.
Really touching and insightful work, by both Palmerino and David (CBC.CA=Radio One). contact at valerio_marques at hotmail.com
