Publication Date
Saturday, October 13, 2018

Raphaëlle de Groot’s artistic practice is process-oriented and generally anchored to living or working environments. It engages participants and communities in the production of traces and narratives, revealing the out of scope elements of human experience, non-visible domains, often forgotten or neglected. Developed from encounters, collaborations, gatherings and other varied actions, her projects are open and exploratory. The ensuing works encompass drawing, photography and video as well as installation and performance. Recently, as part of the event Repères2017 | LandMarks2017, she presented Subsistances – Inniun, a multi-part project stemming from the territory of Minganie in Moyenne-Côte-Nord and, above all, her exchanges with the indigenous and non-indigenous peoples living there. Raphaëlle de Groot holds a masters degree in visual and media arts from Université du Québec à Montréal (2007). Her works have been exhibited in North America, South America and Europe since 1997. She has received multiple distinctions including the Sobey Art Award in 2012.
