Raphaëlle De Groot

Focusing on the process, Raphaëlle de Groot’s artistic endeavour calls upon individuals and communities to participate in the development of tidbits and tales. Elaborated through collaborations or collections of fragments, her works can include drawings, photos, videos, installations, and performances. She recently directed Subsistences Inniun, a multifaceted project inspired by her meeting with the First Nation and non-native communities of Minganie, in the Moyenne-Côte-Nord region (curated by Véronique Leblanc). Raphaëlle de Groot has a Master of Visual and Media Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal. Her works have been exhibited in North America, South America, and Europe since 1997. She is the recipient of many awards, including the Sobey Art Award in 2012.
