Nadège Grebmeier Forget
Sunday October 22 to Saturday October 28, 2017
Something something between and within something something else that may or may not be including something something about it, you or myself. Split screen.
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 1960s 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 diverse strategies of occupying and responding to space (physical or virtual), her work is characterized by a preoccupation with reappropriation, actively exploring the role of meditation on identity construction and fiction. Vulnerable, intimate, baroque and decadent, she serves discomfort.
