Catherine Lescarbeau

Biography

Catherine Lescarbeau is currently pursuing doctoral studies in Art Study and Practice at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). She has taken part in several solo and collective exhibitions and shown various performances in alternative art venues in Montreal and Quebec City (UQO Gallery, Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery, La Mirage). She teaches visual arts at the junior college level and is involved on the board of AXENÉO 7 in Gatineau.

A multidisciplinary artist, she is interested in the relationship between conceptual art and institutional critique as well as the current relevance of these approaches. Her most recent investigations revolve around the house plant. By focussing her research on this object, the artist aims to develop an interface that would enable her to reflect the relationship between culture and nature within corporate and institutional spaces.
