Céline Huyghebaert


Céline Huyghebaert makes work that oscillates between visual art and literature. Using language as her primary tool, she tries to rectify history’s silences and omissions. Her works have been shown in Canada, Belgium and France, namely at the Fonderie Darling, Dare-Dare, the Toronto Art Book Fair and the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montréal. She also publishes her works in books and through self-editing. In 2019, she won the Governor General’s Award for her novel Le drap blanc published by Le Quartanier, and she was awarded the Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art. She has been living in Montréal since 2002.
