Nicole Fournier

Nicole Fournier's artistic practice is based on interdisciplinarity, weaving together aspects of public art, participatory performance, collaboration, cultural mediation and ecovention. The concept of ecovention applies to an intervention in eco-art, which results in positive outcomes for degraded ecosystems. Such a concept is at the core of EmballeToi! Landscape, an installation that Fournier presents on the Darling Foundry's Place Publique for the next thousand years. 


Fournier has taken part and exhibited in artist-run centres in Quebec and in Canada, such as La Centrale Powerhouse, Articule, Verticale and Latitude 53. Her work is supported by the not-for-profit organization InTerreArt, which she founded in 2008. InTerreArt engages multiple actions in partnership with community and environmental organizations, as well as in direct collaboration with neighbours and citizens. The organization is a partner of the City of Montreal for its Sustainable Development Plan and it supports the Agenda21C from the Quebec Government. Fournier holds a B.F.A from Concordia University and is a graduate from McGill university in environmental studies.
