Andréanne Godin

Andréanne Godin observes, dissects and connects the themes of landscape, architecture and spatial perception in order to explore the possibilities of drawing. Representations found in her work echo fragments of personal experiences of time and space. Tangible references to photography (its form, its structure, and its light theory) have traversed their way into her work over time. From daguerreotype to large-format photography or snap shots, the visual language proposed in her drawings borrows from the effects of sensitivity film, focal blur or the instability of the frame. The World’s physicality and the way in which it plays with our senses are often what attracts Andréanne Godin to experiences of the living; as something as simple as a walk in the forest or a swim in a lake can allow her to touch our collective memory. Her installations are part of a visual and sensorial investigation seeking to stimulate the viewers’ senses, therefore the study of colour saturation using dry pigments and the search for light or evanescence all become part of this quest.

Born in Val-d'Or, Québec, Andréanne Godin currently lives and works in Montreal. In 2007, she received a B.A. in Visual Arts from Laval University, Quebec City, and in 2013, an M.F.A. from Concordia University, Montreal. Godin was awarded, later that year, the Hnatyshyn Foundation's Charles Pachter Prize for Emerging Artists. Her work has also been supported by the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec and the Canada Art Council since 2012. She recently took part in several residency programs in Canada an abroad. With the support of the Conseil des Arts et Lettres du Québec, she spent the winter of 2017 as artist in residence at the Atelier Mondial of the Christoph Merian Foundation in Basel (SUI). Over the summer of 2016 she was the first Quebec artist to be hosted by the Josef & Anni Albers Foundation in Connecticut (USA).  Furthermore, she took part in the Struts & Faucet artist in residence program in Sackville New-Brunswick (2015) and to the ArtMandat artist residency in Barjols, France back in 2012. Over the past decade, Godin's work has been presented nationally and internationally in Canada Switzerland, Belgium, United States, Cuba, and France.
