PHI Artistes PHI Montreal Pavrita Amelie Credit Pavitra Wickramasinghe

Amélie Brisson-Darveau and Pavitra Wickramasinghe | PHI Montréal


October 10, 2022 to September 3, 2023


Amélie Brisson-Darveau's artistic projects aim at offering an alternative experience of the “unseen” elements of social environments through an exploration of their tangibility and volume. She approaches her installation work through multiple dimensions by experimenting with the texture and structure of textiles that are put in relation with other materials such as ceramics, wood and light. Her work has been presented in numerous exhibitions and events in Canada, the United States and Europe, particularly in Switzerland, England, Germany, Finland, Lithuania, Norway, Turkey and France. She has received grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the FQRSC and was a recipient of the Kaunas International Biennale’s Emerging Artist Award.


Pavitra Wickramasinghe is a multidisciplinary artist mainly concerned with new ways of conceptualizing the moving image and conventions of seeing. Her current work is an exploration of notions of traveling, fluidity of place and memory. Pavitra’s work has been exhibited in numerous local, national and international venues such as Chroniques-International digital arts bienniale (France), Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, OBORO (Montréal), Kunst Kraft Werk (Germany), Yeosu International Art Festival (South Korea), Centre des Arts Enghien-les-Bains (France), Cable Factory (Finland), Centro Cultural del Matadero (Spain) and Access Gallery (Vancouver) among others. Pavitra was born in Colombo and lives and works in Tiohtiá:ke/Montréal.
