Recently relocated from Montreal to Toronto.
My varied interests include: contemporary art criticism (and its varied crises), embodiment and phenomenology, critical theory, identity politics, installation art, perception and sensorial experience, politics of diaspora and intercultural communities, body and performance-based work, the use of trash and ephemeral material in artmaking, studies of affect and emotion, feminism and its legacies, artist multiples and publications, participatory and community-engaged practices, academic and alternative strategies in contemporary arts education, pop culture, writing and editing, knitting and running.
