Raphaëlle de Groot

Raphaëlle de Groot

Raphaëlle de Groot gathers traces, images, objects, stories and observations. Her creative projects are the fruit of an encounter with a living environment, a territory and people. She is interested in aspects of the human experience that are difficult to represent, such as sensations, the sense of belonging to the world and various states of attention, presence and engagement. For her "touski", she has prepared a landscape with remnants from Subsistances - Inniun, made on Quebec's North Shore from 2016 to 2017, and from the Entre mer et terre corpus presented at Momenta in 2019. Raphaëlle lives and works between Montreal and Orsigna, Italy. The artist has been presenting her work on the Canadian and international scene for twenty-five years. She has received several distinctions, including the Sobey Award for the Arts in 2012.
