Born in Quebec City. Lives and works in Quebec City.
Marie-Hélène Parant is a visual artist working with media and digital means. She holds an MFA in Arts visuels et médiatiques from UQAM and has developed an artistic language, having created interactive digital tools for the participatory environments of installations and performances. She has coordinated digital events in Canada and abroad through SHARE MTL, an organization that she co-founded in 2005.
Parant’s artistic work is concerned with interactive programing that plays on the semantics of transitional. Her work presents a poetic focus on the precarious balance defining our relationship with the environment. Her installations and performative works invite us into worlds that just seem to come to life and encompass us, and which are created through the visitors’ presence and the attention they give to it.
