Marie-Eve Levasseur is a Canadian artist living between Tiohtà:ke / Montréal and Leipzig. Her work deals with intimacy, interactions, non-human ecosystems, mediating devices as extensions and perception of language or images through screens. Using diverse forms and techniques like video, installation, sculpture, prints, 3D animation and Augmented Reality, she questions the proximity of technological and organic surfaces in a posthuman context as well as our perception of device-mediated content, using feminist science fiction as inspiration.

Her projects use speculative fabulation; imagined situations with fictive devices, extensions for human and non-human beings that open a cross-species dialogue in order to reflect upon the way we get along in the system we live in. Her work is multidisciplinary and allows a continuous learning of new techniques, where DIY and open source become part of her artistic posture.

Her works have been shown in many group exhibitions in Montreal, Berlin, London, Paris, Hong Kong and Zurich. In 2020, she receives a research and creation grant from the KdFS (Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen), and in 2021, from the Canada Council for the Arts.
