Geneviève Massé

Born in Rivière-du-Loup, Geneviève Massé lives and works in Montreal. As a conceptual and multidisciplinary artist, she began her career with an academic training in the world of design. With her professional experiences in the visual arts community (ATSA, San Francisco Arts Commission - Bureau d'art public, Mois de la Photo à Montréal, DARE-DARE, etc.), she completed a master's degree in visual and media arts at UQAM in 2017. Massé uses codes, systems, logic, documentation, to question the essence and fundamental aspects of databases and the implementation of these systems that govern our world. She uses both digital technologies and analog tools to operate protocols that develop daily, to photograph, capture, document, draw, count, organize. Thus, she sets up rigorous systems leaving room for arbitrariness during the production process which generates series of images, gestures, lines or manipulations of the same subject. He questions the systems in place and tries to grasp their implicit flaws.
