My career path is not linear. I started by studying the history of art and experimented with sculpture, performance, video installation and photography. Then, I concentrated on experimental documentary video productions. In the early 90s, while living in the Baffin region of the Arctic, video became my tool to understand where I was and to explore this new cultural and natural environment. I co-founded the first access centre for video production in the Canadian Arctic and co-founded a unique collective of Inuit women videographers. My collaborative work in an indigenous culture enabled a more intimate perspective on the methods of production of a socially responsible art, on how the construction of the idea of otherness impacts our creativity and reveals challenges that are at once formal as much as political. Always interested in social themes, such as the environment, the study of culture, decolonization, the role of the collective and individual memories in the act of creation, and women’s rights, I am equally driven by challenges that are formal, aesthetic, and the poetic in all works.
In the last few years I have also produced television series, feature films, websites and exhibited art installations based on video and photos.
