Marie-Michelle Deschamps

Biography

Marie-Michelle Deschamps’ work explores the problematic nature of signification, as well as the fragile boundaries that organise the world. From letter to word and from word to image and objects her installations, sculptures, sound works and books recall, allude to, and deconstruct language as a means of investigating whether there is any content separate from the process or means of revealing.

Born in Montreal in 1980, Deschamps graduated from a MFA at the Glasgow School of Art in 2012. Recent exhibitions include The Working Day, Galerie Gregor Staiger, Zurich (2017); That Cool Decline, Occidental Temporary, Paris (2016); L*, Fonderie Darling, Montreal (2016). Deschamps has upcoming projects at the Austellungraum Kligenthal, Basel and at YYZ, Toronto.
