As a conceptual and multidisciplinary artist, Geneviève Massé uses codes, systems logic and documentation to question the essence and fundamental aspects of data bases and the implementation of such systems that govern our world. She uses both digital and analog tools to operate protocols that continually evolve in order to photograph, capture, document, draw, enumerate and organize. She establishes rigorous systems that allow for arbitrariness in the production process, generating a series of images, gestures, lines or manipulations of a given subject. She questions the systems put in place and attempts to grasp their inherent weaknesses, resulting in attempts at auto-representation through images, drawings or even Excel spreadsheets.
A native of Rivière-du-Loup, Geneviève Massé lives and works in Montreal. She is a conceptual and multidisciplinary artist who initially began with formal training in the world of interior, industrial and event design. Bolstered by her professional experience in the field of visual arts (ATSA, San Francisco Arts Commission, Bureau d’art public / Mois de la photo in Montréal, DARE-DARE, etc.), she is completing a master’s degree in visual arts at the UQAM in 2017. She has exhibited her work in Quebec, principally in Montreal, San Francisco and the World Wide Web, and she has works in private collections.
