Nadège Grebmeier Forget

Actively engaged in Montreal’s visual and live art community as an interdisciplinary artist,project coordinator and curator, Nadège Grebmeier Forget is the first daughter of a runner-up 1960’s California Beauty Queen. She has participated in numerous events,festivals, panels, residencies, and exhibitions in Canada, the USA and Europe./ Her practice provokes reflection on the act of looking as a form of implicit consumption, as well as the power dynamics within which the gaze operates. Using divers strategies of occupying and responding to space (physical or virtual), here work is characterized by a preoccupation with re-appropriation, actively exploring the role of meditation on identity construction and fiction. Vulnerable, intimate, baroque and decadent, she serves discomfort.
