Amélie Brisson-Darveau lives and works between Montreal and Hamburg. She received her MFA from Concordia University in the Fiber Art program. Before she started her MFA, Amélie completed a B.A. in Visual and Media Art at the Université du Québec à Montréal and received a second BA in Social Work from Université de Montréal. Amélie is interested in activating the dynamics between architecture, textiles and shadows. In her installations and drawings, she experiments and research on textures and structures through a method similar to the one of a tailor: to trace, to cut and to assemble. Her work has been shown in various exhibitions and events in Canada, United-States, Switzerland, England, France, Germany, Greece, Finland, Lithuania, Turkey and Norway. She has received grants from FQRSC (Fonds de recherche sur la science et la culture) and the Canada Council for the Arts and the Emerging Artist Award from the Kaunas Textile Biennale.
