Same Day – 2012
The exhibition Same Day explores the many different voices in news media that frame events and the limitations of trying to take part in a public discussion. In response to the dispute over tuition increases last spring I wrote a letter to Premier Jean Charest that I sent to six different newspapers in Canada; the Montreal Gazette chose to publish a heavily edited version of my text. In order to have my opinion published I had to accept being gazettified.
Triples – 2009

During a three-month artist residency in Vienna, Austria I produced a series of photographs titled Triples, where I approached couples and photographed our suggested intimacy in the private context of their homes.
The Dad Tapes / The Mom Photographs: Chronology – 2007
The Dad Tapes / The Mom Photographs installation reveals the constructed nature of family snap-shots. The accompanying video, Chronology, compiles an hour of short clips that track a 30-year history of simultaneous recordings: my father’s home movies captured the before and after of my mother’s family photographs. Although the footage testifies to a particular personal history, the final work speaks more of a collective experience of families choreographing themselves for the camera.
The Dad Tapes / The Mom Photographs: Sunsets – 2007

While the intention of the documents was to preserve these moments forever, both artworks underline the bittersweet sensation of loss and futility within the whole process of documentation.
