Catherine Boisvenue lives and works in Montreal, Canada. She has recently graduated in Visual and Media Arts from the University of Quebec (Montreal). She also studied psycho-education, as well as a training course in artistic interventions at the Machincuepa Social Circus, located in Mexico. Alongside her artistic practice, Catherine is interested in the power that art can have on the human being and on a community. After participating in an exhibition last year at Memorial da América Latina in Sao Paulo, Catherine decided to strengthen her ties with Brazil through an artist residency. Selected to participate in our programme, she focused on a practice that combined painting with the relationship that she built with “the other” and the local culture.
