SCAD presents "The End Has Different Stories," four sculptural installations by Montreal-based artist Simon Bilodeau, created specifically for the "jewel box" exhibition spaces on the façade of the SCAD Museum of Art. Bilodeau creates mysterious, fantastic worlds within a restrained palette of whites, grays, silvers and blacks that juxtapose luxurious objects and debris, mythology and history. These works comment on cataclysmic events that threaten to destroy human civilization. 

For this project, Bilodeau envisions the "jewel boxes" as a series of anthropological museum showpieces, wherein his evocative contemporary sculptures, video works, drawings and paintings are presented in an intentionally archaic display. "The End Has Different Stories" provokes viewers’ imaginations by what the artist describes as "constructing a myth in order to make history tangible."
