Geneviève Massé

Geneviève Massé

A conceptual and multidisciplinary artist, Geneviève Massé uses codes, systems and documentation to question the information and databases that govern our world. She takes advantage of both digital technologies and analog tools to operate protocols that develop on a daily basis to photograph, capture, document, draw, count and organize. In this way, she establishes rigorous systems that leave room for arbitrariness during the production process, from which she generates series of images, gestures, lines or manipulations of the same subject. She questions the structures put in place and attempts to grasp the implicit loopholes from which emerge attempts at self-representation through image, drawing, or even the computational grid. Massé draws on scientific methods to carry out exhaustive documentation work on each project, in order to give an account of the work process in progress. His approach raises questions about new approaches to photography and the creation of new documents. The work bears witness to both the process and the intended results.

A native of Rivière-du-Loup, Massé lives and works in Montreal. She began her career with general training in interior, industrial and event design. Drawing on her professional experience in the visual arts (ATSA, San Francisco Arts Commission - Public Art, Mois de la Photo à Montréal, DARE-DARE, etc.), she began a master's degree in visual and media arts at UQAM in 2013. She has exhibited her work mainly in Montreal and San Francisco. Her works are part of private collections.
