Performing arts


Zoé Fauvel is an artist based in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal, having split her studies in photography between Concordia University and the Bauhaus, in Weimar, Germany.

She believes in art as a form of experience, and experience as a form of knowledge, which leads her to explore photography in relation to performance and installation. Her curiosity and process are guided by a deepening experiential intimacy with the photographic object.

Her work has been presented in Canada and Germany, notably during the festivities surrounding the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus.

Approach and works on display

Zoé Fauvel’s process is to create a conversation between the photographic object, its physicality, its experience and its dissemination. Working from research and experimentation as an impetus, she goes through several rounds of accumulation, appropriation and production of images as a starting point to create and generate ideas. After documenting the initial stages of the process, she includes interactive performance gestures in the object of creation as a way to anchor her practice in the pursuit of an embodied experience. If the space lends itself to it, she invests it with the same desire: to open the photograph as a landscape in which one can sink and be enveloped.

Her artistic curiosity is guided by the potential of vulnerability and emotions as political connections on an intimate and collective scale. Recently, she has been interested in data visualization, the sublime, distance, games of scale and the in/accessible.
