Marie-Ève Levasseur is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. Their work unfolds through various media such as video, installation, sculpture, digital printing, 3D animation as well as virtual and augmented reality. Levasseur is interested in the notion of process, hybridized becoming, metamorphosis and potential collaboration with the non-human. Their research draws from a feminist posthumanism and attempts to identify the place of the material and emotional body in our interpersonal communications through screens. Their projects are propositional, drawing on feminist science fiction and often involving speculative fabulation. This results in situations that are imagined or anchored in reality, accompanied by fictional devices, extensions for human and non-human beings that open a dialogue between species in order to reflect on our mutual dependencies.

Levasseur holds a Master's degree and a Meisterschüler from the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig, Germany and has participated in various residency programs, including Schloss Solitude in Germany (2020), Sporobole and La Chambre Blanche in Canada (2022). Their installations have been exhibited internationally, notably in Berlin, Paris, Zürich, Hong Kong and London. The artist’s work is frequently supported by grants, including a subvention from the Canada Council for the Arts in 2021, and in 2022, from the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec.
