Vickie Grondin

Vickie Grondin

Graduated from the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal in 2014, Vickie Grondin then began a bachelor’s degree in communication at the Université du Québec à Montréal. In 2016, she co-founded Flamant, a dance film collective. Multidisciplinary artist, director and author, her approach is anchored in an intimate relationship between the body and the territory, more particularly island environments such as the Magdalen Islands where her practice has been part of since 2017. Inspired by ecofeminism, she continually seeks to become one with the territory, to be part of, even to erode with, to explore a rapprochement with the ecosystem and what it experiences. Self-portraiture, writing and videopoetry are for her emancipatory practices and mediums allowing her to create images with sensitivity. By carrying out an incorporated and attentive research of the body-territory, she seeks to transfer the thickness of the lived experience to the collective space of the gallery or the film. The spaces of reciprocity and exchange that feed intersubjective and co-constructed knowledge matter greatly. To do this, many of her works are collaborative in nature. Il fait bleu (2021), a collection of poetry and photography co-written with Alphiya Joncas and published by Éditions OMRI, is the story of an encounter between two women where the voices merge to say what, from a single body, seeks anchoring. In Précession des Équinoxes (2022), commissioned by the CANICHES festival and a co-production by VU, she explores through self-portraiture her relationship to solitude in a lunar fiction where she embodies an astronaut eager for a different identity than that imposed by patriarchy. What Remains (2023) is a hybrid story between a narrative and dance short film questioning our dominant behaviors in the face of the environment and its collapse. This work represents her first official short film for distribution beyond the home. Currently a candidate for a master’s degree in visual arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal, she pursues theoretical, political and sensitive research on the body-territory, insular and saline.
