Alisa Arsenault

Emerging artist from Moncton, Arsenault completed studies at the University of Moncton in print making and photography. Her work manifests itself mostly in the form of installations comprised of photographs, print work, video projections and sound. She has participated in many professional group exhibitions, such as, ‘Somewheres’, at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, art gallery in Charlottetown, P.-E.-I., Acadie Mythique, a travelling exhibition curated by Harlan Johnson as well as Les découpes: L’Évangeline en images a travelling exhibit curated by Jennifer Bélanger. She has exhibited solo shows in both Moncton New-Brunswick at Galerie Sans Nom and in Trois-Rivière, Québec at Galerie Presse Papier. She will represent her province of NB in Les Jeux de la Francophonie 2017 in Abijan on the Ivory Coast as a media artist this coming July.

Through the deconstruction of images and words found within her personal family videos and the material or performative reconstitution of segments of her history, the artist questions inherited narratives. Segmented and semi-reconstituted, these locks of memories form a melancholic yet humorous whole to serve as an antidote to a universal nostalgia.
