Nadia Myre,

is a contemporary visual artist from Quebec and Algonquin member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinaabeg First Nation, based in Montreal. For her first solo exhibition in France, she continues her long-standing research into the historical links between Europe and North America, and the forms of colonialism that persist in contemporary society. For more than a decade, Nadia Myre has used public participation as a strategy for initiating a dialogue on identity, resilience and the politics of belonging. In 2022, she presented several of her works in the exhibition Lignes de fuite at the CIAPV, and was hosted in residency in 2023 and 2024 in preparation for this exhibition.

The exhibition

Lignes & Cordes raises questions of identity and language, translation and appropriation between cultures and across time. Featuring new works in bronze, ceramics, drawing, photography and video, the exhibition evokes absent bodies and histories, as well as new journeys and possible beginnings. All ropes are lines with bites and bitter ends.With the support of the Délégation générale du Québec à Paris and the Centre culturel canadien à Paris.In production partnership with CRAFT, Limoges, Fonderie Guillaume Couffignal, Aixe-sur-Vienne, Kìnawind Lab, Montreal, and Moulin du Got, Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat.
