Back Wall Series: Annie Thibault

Annie Thibault is the latest in our series of artists featured as part of our Back Wall Series in the gallery shop.

Inspired by an aesthetic sense of where art, science, and nature intermingle, Annie Thibault’s practice employs multiple forms as diverse as drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and video.  Her recent interest in various forms of living and little-known networks has led to an art that encourages part-scientific and part-artistic exploration of non-human life, its remarkable resilience, and its untapped potential.

Annie Thibault lives and works in Gatineau, Qc., Canada.  She has studied both science and art and completed a degree in Visual Art at l’Université du Québec en Outaouais. Recipient of numerous grants, awards, and prizes, including Claudia De Hueck Fellowship in Art and Science, Thibault has completed several permanent public art projects in addition to exhibitions and residencies in biological laboratories in Canada, Barcelona and in Finland.  In 2017 she will be in residence at Carleton University’s Department of Biology.  Her works are in the collection of numerous public and private collections including the permanent collection of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.  She completed her Master’s degree at the University of Ottawa in 2016 and was the recipient of the Michel Goulet prize.

 

Annie Thibault is currently an exhibiting artist in ‘Situation/Material/Ocean’ which is part of the Ephemeral Coast series of exhibitions and events curated by Celina Jeffery in association with Mission Gallery, Swansea.

Ephemeral Coast links the bays of Swansea, Port Talbot and Carmarthen with coastal spaces internationally, including Mauritius, the USA, and Canada. Working with an array of artists, climate change scientists and writers from the humanities, the exhibition seeks to develop a nexus of understanding between art, empathy, and the degradation of the ocean. A series of exhibitions will unfold across the region from early 2017 to Spring 2018, each addressing a different approach to imaging and imagining the demise of the ocean as witnessed through coastal visuality.
