Michelle Caron-Pawlowsky is a multidisciplinary artist from Montreal, Canada who primarily works with images. Michelle is currently pursuing a BFA in Studio Arts in the Photography program at Concordia University in Montreal, where she has received a number of grants to pursue art projects. She has most recently shown her work in the fourth edition of Artch, with Projet Tabloïde’s public billboard project, and as part of a large-scale architectural projection with Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles. This year, she was an artist in residence with Art Souterrain’s Créer des Ponts and is currently an Emerging Artist in Residence at Franconia Sculpture Park in Minnesota. She is the co-founder and co-director of Colure Collective, a group working to create exhibition and publication opportunities for emerging artists in Quebec. Colure’s first publication, In Continuum, will be released this year.

Michelle’s work draws on individual and collective histories as a point of departure. Centering on the mutable and vulnerable nature of memory, she is especially interested in long-term processes of healing and the sentimental value we ascribe to objects and collections. Using a multidisciplinary approach that includes photography and installation, she often works with layers and transparencies to consider acts of recollection and movement. Michelle informs her practice through research into subjects such as queer ecology, environmental studies, and psychology.
