In Conversation: Dominique Normand and Evlyne Laurin


August 24th 2022 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Montreal, Quebec

Montréal-based multi titled art professional Evlyne Laurin in discussion with artist Dominique Normand, featured artist of Ocean Week Canada. They will discuss Normand’s approach to working in and with coastal places and her recent artist research journey exploring Lake Mistassini, Quebec’s largest natural lake.

Dominique Normand created a powerful series of paintings based on her 2017 artist-in-residency on the Students on Ice Foundation Canada C3 Expedition. Aboard the icebreaker Polar Prince, Dominique travelled from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Nain, Labrador.  She will discuss her experiences as an ocean artist-researcher, her series of paintings inspired by Fogo Island, and her multi-media work-in-progress based on her recent freshwater trip joined by her friends from the Cree community of Mistissini.

Dominique Normand gives visual form to omnipresent powers that shape the world of human experience in the Northern territories. She discovered her paternal Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) heritage as an adult and, enriched by her own experience with the Cree people of James Bay, explores the entwined harmony of all our relations, a traveller bearing a camera, armed with a brush. Her work has been showcased in many solo and group exhibitions throughout Quebec and internationally.
