CATHERINE BOISVENUE MENARD
Catherine Boisvenue Ménard is an interdisciplinary artist from Montreal/Tiohti:áke. She holds a Master's degree in fine arts, painting and drawing from Concordia University and a Bachelor's degree in visual and media art from the University of Quebec in Montreal. Transgressing the limits of the frame that delimits the traditional space of painting, her work navigates between analogous processes, performance arts, installation, and digital creation.
Boisvenue was the recipient of the Tom Hopkins Award and the Harriet and Abe Gold Entrance Bursary from Concordia University. In 2019, she won the first prize from the jury of the Contemporary Art Fair of St-Lambert. Her work is currently supported the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Conseil des arts de Montréal. Engaged in the development of visual arts in Canada, she also deepened some ongoing research in Brazil and exhibited in 2022 at the Frauenmuseum in Bonn, Germany.
Project Name: Blurred-Body: Beetles and Moths
Revealing an unusual, invisible, and subjective dimension of the body, this project blurs the boundaries with nature and leads us to think of the world as an extension of ourselves. Questioning the relationship between painting, sculpture, installation, performing arts and digital arts, he introduces the dances of strange creatures whose paradigmatic inhabitants are of human, vegetable, animal, monstrous, ghostly and/or spiritual nature.
