Yanie Porlier

Yanie Porlier is a visual media artist. Recipient of scholarships from the Ottawa School of Art Lilian Raport Memorial Scholarship, (2017), Fritz Allgoewer Memorial (2017) and Mix Media (2016), Yanie also had the opportunity to do a mentorship program with the internationally recognized French artist Fred Forest, as part of a Canada-France collaboration during his retrospective at the Center des arts Georges Pompidou. In her artistic practice, she introduces an interactive aspect where the viewer is involved in the creation of the work. This interaction between the artist and citizens / visitors complements the concept of fluid boundaries between the work, the artist and the viewer, citizens and visitors, natives and immigrants.
